Tim Keller’s Definition of Contextualization #QUOTE

In his book, Center Church, Tim Keller defines contextualization as this:

“giving people the Bible’s answers, which they may not all want to hear, to questions about life that people in their particular time and place are asking, in language and forms they can comprehend, and through appeals and arguments with force they can feel, even if they reject them.”

If you’ve yet to purchase or read this book – it’s one of the best in regard to doctrine, mission, contextualization, all bathed in the gospel. You should pick it up!
