Communication Theory for Christian Witness
By: Charles H. Kraft
Crucial insights for preachers, pastors, missioners, and educators on communicating the Gospel in different cultural settings. ""Valuable""--Virginia Seminary Journal
In this revision of a long-enduring classic, Kraft draws upon faith experience and the social sciences to make pastors, preachers, missionaries, and religious educators aware of the mystery of human communication in the service of God who calls all into communion. The question is how to communicate with these other cultures so that the message is effectively transmitted and received? How to we recognize the gaps--of language, tradition, life experience--that separate us and build bridges over them.
