Please check out the latest article by Professor Miriam Adeney, “Why Cultures Matter,” published in the International Journal of Frontier Missiology, 32-2 (2015): 93-97.
Dr. Adeney identifies four reasons why cultures still matter, including a particularly Christian reason: Culture is a gift of God. Cultures “must be valued as treasure chests of symbols for exuberant expression of the image of God. Such cultures enrich God’s world. [….] The God who creates billions of unique snowflakes and personalities, […] who imagines a boggling array of tropical fish in the ocean […] delights in diversity.”
In this recently published commentary, “Hosea (Two Horizons Old Testament Commentary),” Drs. Bo Lim (associate professor of Old Testament at Seattle Pacific University and Seminary) and Daniel Castelo (associate professor of dogmatic and constructive theology at Seattle Pacific University and Seminary) come together “to help the church recover and read the prophetic book of Hosea in a way that is both faithful to its message and relevant to our contemporary context."
