NT Wright on Contextualisation

What a privilege to spend time with Tom Wright and get to talk about evangelism, mission and contextualisation. Everything he says here is off the cuff which is a measure of the breadth of his learning and his communication skills.

Tom shows us what we can learn from both Jesus and the Apostle Paul’s approach to faithful relevance. I deliberately asked Tom what he though of the idea that Tim Keller shared here – that contextualisation is just shuffling around the 10 different points of the gospel that you need to share with people.

I also had the chance to ask what we learn from the gospel writers about how to speak the gospel today. It’s a great little video and I would encourage you to watch it and pass it on.

    Tom continues to be able to get to the heart of the matter so clearly. I am preparing to lead an SU holiday with 50 young people in a couple of weeks time and I think I will use this as part of our team preparation. Thank you so much for sharing.
