Here’s what the reviews say about Andrew’s book.

“This is an outstanding book. Andrew Prince’s thesis is convincing, that both Scripture and the church fathers can help to shape our approach to contextualizing the gospel today…Pastors, missionaries, teachers, anyone engaged in Christian mission will benefit from this accessible and welcome resource.”Dean Flemming, MidAmerica Nazerne University

“Prince uses an old perspective to forge a new path in the contextualization discussion. His appeal to the church fathers is scholarly and creative; yet. he ultimately grounds his proposal on the Bible. Contextualization of the Gospel raises questions that need thoughtful answers.”Jackson Wu, author of One Gospel for All Nations and Saving God’s Face

“Prince provides a significant contribution to the current contextualization discussion by grounding his analysis of contextualization in four sermons found in Acts and offering an important window into the insights of Chrysostom. While focused on materials from the early church, Prince provides important bridges to current issues and debates in contextualization and clearly demonstrates the continuing relevance of the church fathers.”Scott Moreau, Wheaton College Graduate School
