The Global Gospel: Western Contextualization and the Bibles’s Honor/Shame Dynamics

The Global Gospel: Western Contextualization and the Bibles Honor/Shame Dynamics
Presented by Mr. Werner Mischke, Director of Training Ministries, Mission ONE

This webinar series will review key concepts from Werners book http://globalgospelbook.org/. The Global Gospel: Achieving Missional Impact in Our Multicultural World. The singular issue which the book addresses may be defined by posing this question: How can the honor/shame dynamics common to the Bible and many Majority World societies be used to contextualize the gospel of Christ in order to make it more widely understood and accepted? The webinars will deliver key concepts from the four sections of the book: a) Differences between guilt and shame, b) and why we have an honor/shame blind spot, c) Honor/shame dynamics in the Bible hidden in plain sight; d) Honor-status reversal as a motif of the Bible; e) How the Bible honor/shame dynamics overlap with the gospel; f) Five levels of awareness of honor/shame in cross-cultural ministry; and g) Honor/shame dynamics in our mission purpose, training, and practice. The Global Gospel has more than 85 diagrams and charts; the PowerPoint presentations from each webinar will contain some of the key diagrams and charts that populate each section of the book, and will be available as free downloads for participants.

H/S-1 to H/S-5: Levels of Awareness of Honor/Shame in Cross-cultural Ministry

Since 2009, I have been on a learning journey about the dynamic of honor/shame in scripture and its significance for cross-cultural ministry. By God’s grace, I’ve had the opportunity to read and conduct research, to write on the subject, to introduce the subject of honor/shame (H/S) through numerous seminars and workshops, to create resources, and to teach collaboratively with two indigenous ministry partners.
