"contextualised truth into youth culture"

"It is not uncommon for youthworkers to advocate a completely formless, unstructured approach to church. After giving a seminar on the future shape of the church, Michael went to dinner with some students. At one point someone said, “I agree with you about the church. It needs a complete overhaul. I mean here we are, six guys eating together, talking about Jesus. We’re a church now!”"
Good article here that summarizes a lot of key concepts about cross cultural missions - contextualization, syncretism, the core of the Gospel and the Muslim C scale. It's an excerpt from what looks to be like a really good book.
