Not all cultures view the Gospel in the same way. The Global Gospel describes how the honor/shame dynamics common to the Bible and many Majority World societies can be used to contextualize the gospel so it will be more widely received.
Jackson Wu argues that some traditional East Asian cultural values are closer to those of the first-century biblical world than Western cultural values, which can have a profound impact on how we communicate the gospel.
Honor, Shame, and the Gospel provides valuable resources to impact the ministry efforts of the church, locally and globally. Linked with its ancient honor-shame cultural roots, the gospel, paradoxically, is ever new-offering fresh wisdom to Christian leaders and optimism to the church for our quest to expand Christ's kingdom and serve the worldwide mission of God.
