SESSION ONE: REINTERPRETING CONTEXTUALIZATION “All theology is contextualized theology.” This has emerged as something of a dictum among many missiologists and theologians. We all come to Scripture with our limited worldviews and varying assumptions. In light of these realities, the opening session will examine common evangelical views about contextualization, which is largely regarded as application and communication. I suggest that a holistic approach to contextualization has a more foundational starting point––biblical interpretation. In the process, I offer a few criteria for healthy contextualization. Also, I will address an important preliminary concern––the relationship between culture and the Bible.
