Show Notes

On this episode of Mission Minded we are joined by Christopher Flanders and Werner Mischke, authors of the book Honor, Shame, and The Gospel. 

Christians engaged in communicating the gospel navigate a challenging tension: faithfulness to God’s ancient, revealed Word—and relevance to the local, current social context. What if there was a lens or paradigm offering both? Understanding the Bible—particularly the gospel—through the ancient cultural “language” of honor-shame offers believers this double blessing. An honorific gospel offers new points of resonance with communities where shame and honor are critical values, including most unreached peoples.  

In Honor, Shame, and the Gospel, over a dozen practitioners and scholars from diverse contexts and fields add to the ongoing conversation around the theological and missiological implications of an honorific gospel. Eight illuminating case studies explore ways to make disciples in a diversity of social contexts—for example, East Asian rural, Middle Eastern refugee, African tribal, and Western secular urban.

Honor, Shame, and the Gospel provides valuable resources to impact the ministry efforts of the church, locally and globally. Linked with its ancient honor-shame cultural roots, the gospel, paradoxically, is ever new—offering fresh wisdom to Christian leaders and optimism to the church for our quest to expand Christ’s kingdom and serve the worldwide mission of God.

We Are Not The Hero | Jean Johnson

"Missions is not about place, but about people." God has been writing Jean Johnson's story since the beginning. God began to soften her heart towards the nations when displaced Southeast Asians came to her school in Minneapolis. This started a journey for her reaching out to Cambodians locally when she wasn't able to actually travel or live in Cambodia full time. Then she had the opportunity to work for 16 years in Cambodia. Today, she is a missionary, author, and leader of a non-profit organization.
