Oraon Christian's Way of Life: Interaction of Faith and Culture

Clare Purakary HM. (Author)

Religion and culture are living realities connected with people. They both influence each other, and so the Gospel touches and transforms both. Culture itself through its symbolic aspects and concrete elements becomes a real road on which the Gospel with its transcendent values reaches the very centre of the human heart. This unique book provides the missionary experiences of the author. It presents before the readers as how culture and religion interact together and renovate each other. The Liberative power of the Gospel was very much acceptable to Oraons, the people of the Lievens Mission. It not only set them free from their economic bondages but they found home in Christianity, as it has lot of similarities with their religion. In this scholarly work, the author in her interpretative style has analysed the belief systems and way of life of the Oraons. She has also succinctly presented her unique and revealing research findings together with proposals for effective proclamation of the Gospel. This book is a scientific study offered by the author and without any doubt would assist future generation who prefer to learn and work for a local theology and ultimately it's a purposeful evangelization.
