Theology in Context: A Case Study in the Philippines by Dr. Dave Johnson, Dr. Russ Turney

This book takes a close look at the culture of one of the lowland Filipino groups with a view toward developing contextual theology that is biblically accurate, missiologically sound and culturally relevant throughout the Filipino lowlands. Johnson delves deep, seeking to understand the religious worldview assumptions that underpin and drive the various religious practices and the people who are involved in them.
Here are some of the issues covered:
All-Saints Day and the dead returning to their gravesites
Demon Possession
Town Fiestas
Sickness and Healing
How people have been transformed by the power of God within their
own cultural setting, both in the past and present
And much more!
