Those who grew up in the west are quite often unaware that those in different cultures don't approach the Bible with the same assumptions that we do. This doesn't necessarily make us (or them) wrong, but it can lead to problems in communicating effectively. Since the Bible wan't written from a Western perspective, it can hamper our own understanding of Scripture as well.+  * [[https://amzn.to/2KDg1da|Misreading Scripture with Western Eyes]] by E.

-<WRAP center round box 90%> \\ Hiebert’s ‘capstone’ book, Transforming Worldviews, is a must-read in my opinion. In our ongoing attempts at contextualization, Hiebert helps us to understand that we don’t modify the gospel to fit our worldview or the convert’s worldview. This book provides a guide for analysing worldview for the purpose of disciple-making, a process in which the worldviews of both the disciple and the disciple-maker are transformed by the biblical worldview. \\ </WRAP>+<WRAP center round box 75%> \\ Hiebert’s ‘capstone’ book, Transforming Worldviews, is a must-read in my opinion.
