Semester 2 unit: What is ‘Context’?

Lecturer:
Professor John Flett

What is ‘Context’? What does it mean to ‘have a context’? This unit examines this concept, especially in terms of the relationship of Christian faith to culture(s). What might it mean for the Christian gospel to be “local” while also “continuous” with the tradition? You will gain a better understanding of concepts like indigenisation, acculturation, enculturation, inculturation and context.
