Bolger on Shenk and Modernity

A quote from one of my profs, Ryan Bolger, who blogs at the BolgBlog, describing one of the men who shaped his life.

"Wilbert Shenk, himself a devoted student of Lesslie Newbigin, went about deconstructing my notions of mission, Christendom, church, evangelism, and the list went on. He demonstrated how my understanding of Christian life was derived more from a culture called modernity than it was from the biblical narratives."

I think that practicing, Born Again Christians would be very surpised at how much of what they deem as Christianity is much more cultural than Biblical.

We could use a bit of shaking up in this area.
