Gospel and Culture in North East India: A Missiological and Anthropological Study from Zeliangrong Perspective

 
Rampaukube Hekwet (Author)
Synopsis

The book introduces the pre-Christian Zeliangrong Nagas, then, it presents how Christianity came in contact with the people in the late 19th century and the subsequent conversion, the first being in 1897. It further discusses the growth of Christianity, formation of Zeliangrong Baptist Association in 1953 and the formations of various associations in the 1980's. Then it discusses the interaction of Gospel and the Zeliangrong culture which continues to exist till now.  The mission works of the Zeliangrong Baptist Associations (ZBAs) were studied and it argues that the Christian mission today is less-progressive unlike before, because the culture and the contemporary contexts are not being taken seriously. Therefore, the writer seeks to provoke the churches, missionaries and Christians in general, to revitalize the healthy cultural values and integrate them in the mission strategy for a contextually relevant and effective mission.
