"The Gospel as Public Truth": An Indian Multi-Religious Perspective on Lesslie Newbigin

 
Fr. Samuel George (Author) Christian Heritage Rediscovered
Synopsis

This book addresses the issue of "Christian Gospel" and "Culture" in the multi-faith context of India. The Author believes that, Bishop Lesslie Newbigin's clarion call of "Gospel as Public Truth" is the point of departure in relation to the Religious Pluralism prevalent in India. Christian Gospel is unabashedly hinged to the person of Jesus, the Christ. When this Gospel is preached as "Public Truth" in a context like India there is all possibility that it is misunderstood and even rejected. In such a scenario, two tendencies are usually visible: privatizing of the Christian Gospel or a bulldozing of it on others. Either of these can be dangerous, detrimental and counter productive to the affirmation of both Christian Gospel and Culture.

This book is a humble attempt to understand this interaction of the Gospel and Culture of India, in the light of the discussions put forward by Newbigin. Armed with a detailed Bibliography and supplementing Appendices the book is meant for Historians, Christian Laity, Church Clergies, Theologians, Religious leaders, Students and Researchers, all alike.
