Item description for Bearing the Witness of the Spirit: Lesslie Newbigin's Theology of Cultural Plurality (Our Gospel and 0ur Culture) by George Hunsberger...

Overview
In this in-depth study of Lesslie Newbigin's thought, George Hunsberger brings into clear view the "theology of cultural plurality" nascent in Newbigin's books and demonstrates its importance for the missiological enterprise today. Interacting closely with Newbigin's published and unpublished works, Hunsberger describes Newbigin's biblical rationale for the life and witness of the church in a culturally plural world. By teasing out Newbigin's thinking in this realm, Hunsberger gives shape to a theological area of inquiry and reflection badly needed for fruitful discussions of cross-cultural mission, religious pluralism, and ecumenism.

Reviews - What do customers think about Bearing the Witness of the Spirit: Lesslie Newbigin's Theology of Cultural Plurality (Our Gospel and 0ur Culture)?

Review of Hunsberger's "Bearing the Witness"  Jan 13, 2001
Any serious researcher of Lesslie Newbigin's missiological writings cannot go around George Hunsberger's keen analysis in the book, "Bearing the Witness of the Spirit." You must go through it. It is essential reading. Hunsberger, a noted and respected scholar of the highest calibre, argues in this book that the doctrine of election is the key through which Newbigin's "theology of cultural plurality" (the subtitle) is best understood. The ground-breaking work in this book, which competently interprets Newbigin's philosophy and theology, has been well-received and highly regarded within British academics and universities. If you are serious about understanding Newbigin, then this book will be an indispensable part of your library as Hunsberger ably and masterfully takes his reader through the plethora of Newbigin's writings. I highly recommend this book and its author.
 
Firm foundations for a missional view of cultural plurality  May 14, 2000
Hunsberger provides an excellent summary of the complex, provocative, and important missiological writings of Lesslie Newbigin. The thesis is that Newbigin broke new ground biblically and missionally by founding his view of cultural plurality within the election of God. I found this thesis to be both informative and convincing as an important starting place for conversations about the diversity of cultures and religious viewpoints we encounter within our world. This book weaves together materials from the numerous writings of Newbigin and provides the reader with a helpful guide for understanding this important author and his unique point of view. Anyone serious about addressing the issue of cultural plurality needs to include this book as a must read.
 
Newbigin, Neo-Kuperianism, and Hunsberger  Aug 17, 1999
As a committed neo-Kuyperian (hired to teach more than 150 university students the neo-Kuyperian worldview each year), whose doctoral dissertation is on Lesslie Newbigin, and who organized a colloquium for discussion between Newbigin and 25 of the leading neo-Kuyperian scholars in the world, in the interest of fairness and justice (not to say Christian charity), I must protest the book review of Gregory Turner. George Hunsberger's book is an able treatment of Newbigin's thought. I quote a sentence from my (invited and refereed!) review of Newbigin's book in the 'International Bulletin of Missionary Research': "[Hunsberger's] book is clearly written, highly nuanced, and brimming with insight into the structure of Newbigin's theology and into a number of significant issues discussed in missiology today" (IBMR. 23, 2, April 1999, p.80). And, by the way, Bavinck's book 'Between Temple and Mosque' is an outstanding book as well! It, however, does not deal with cultural pluralism but with religious pluralism.
 
"Hoo-rah" of Hubris  Aug 8, 1999
From the onset the reader is given subtle clues as to where this "yellow brick road" is heading. From attributing a "Theology of Cultural Pluralism" to the genius of Lesslie Newbigin(a phrase never mentioned or documented by himself), to the conspicious abstraction of the word "church" - referenced only as a nebulous concept with never a concrete embodiment or example, Hunsberger perhaps confuses his own cultural disembededness and concomitant plausability crisis for an innovative analysis of Newbigins so-called "pluralist" missiology. If rallying around studied ambiguity,self contradiction, and inadvertant- if not ideologically deliberate - misinformation and distortion are your goals, this is the one. If not, I might suggest an old Temple and Mosque". At least you will know where he's going and even if you think he gets it "wrong" you will know that you have been put on the"right" track.
