I found the book an extremely helpful discussion relating the gospel of Jesus Christ to contemporary Westerners in our postmodern culture. If you're interested in ecclesiology, missiology, or the philosophy of science, this book will clarify key issues. I read it and immediately started back through it again with a highlighter in hand.

A congregational minister who became Bishop in the Church of South India: a lifetime of working in an ecumenical context where Christianity is a minority faith. Newbigin is becoming increasingly influential as the Western churches catch up with his experience. More critical of culture than Donovan and so an excellent complement. (Staff, 2008).
