For those of you who like a little more of a heavy read with amazing content,

Moreau’s book on contextualization could do the job. With the ever looming issue of contextualization bringing anxiety to the church, Moreau does a great job of providing overview of the theological discussion till present.

Moreau deals with issue of contextualization such as Hiebert’s view Kraft’s view and many more. He deals with contemporary mapping of contextual issues involving Gilliland, Cortez and Van Engan’s models.

Overall, while a big read at over 400 pages, for those of us pursuing deeper contextualization, it is a must read and my suggestion as a new standard text for missions.
