Foolishness to the Greeks: The Gospel and Western Culture
Two decades ago Lesslie Newbiginâ€™s Foolishness to the Greeks: The Gospel and Western Culture (Grand Rapids, MI: William B. Eerdmans Publishing Co., 1988) was vital to my labors at Carnegie Mellon U. Last year I attended the Fuller Theological Seminary conference which produced The Gospel and Pluralism Today: Reassessing Lesslie Newbigin in the 21st CenturyÂ (Downers Grove, IL: InterVarsity Press, 2015). When reviewing the list of supplementary texts for class, I could not resist the call to return to Foolishness to the Greeks to prayerfully consider post-Christian paganism as the most challenging missionary frontier (20).
