Reviews - What do customers think about Paradigms in Conflict: 10 Key Questions in Christian Missions Today?
Relevant, Provocative, Stimulating, Frustrating Feb 20, 2007
This book engages ten of the more important missiological questions of our time. It is provocative because it goes against the grain of much contemporary thinking; and stimulating because it prompts to reader to clarify his or her own thoughts on the issues surfaced. Ultimately the book is frustrating because Hesselgrave, while purporting to present an objective duscussion, works from within a unbiblially narrow and freqently outdated frame, which the reader discerns early on,and thus invariably comes to predictable conclusions. Readers comfortable with a dispensationist hermeneutic will appreciate the book more than others.
