Gospel Clothing Part III

First, see Gospel Clothing, then Gospel Clothing Part II.

Here is part 3, from David Wells:

It is the task of theology, then, to discover what God has said in and through Scripture and to clothe that in a conceptuality which is native to our own age.  Scripture, at its terminus a quo [starting point], needs to be de-contextualized in order to grasp its transcultural content, and it needs to be re-contextualized in order that its content may be meshed with the cognitive assumptions and social patterns of our own time.

Read the whole thing.

This is such an important concept, especially for those who want to preach the “pure gospel” to Muslims.
