38 editions published between 1989 and 2019 in 5 languages and held by 856 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Description based upon print version of record; A highly respected Christian leader and ecumenical figure, Newbigin provides a brilliant analysis of contemporary (secular, humanist, pluralist) culture and suggests how Christians can more confidently affirm their faith in such a context. While drawing from scholars such as Michael Polanyi, Alasdair MacIntyre, Hendrikus Berkhof, Walter Wink, and Robert Wuthnow, The Gospel in a Pluralist Society is suited not only to an academic readership. This heartfelt work by a missionary pastor and preacher also offers to Christian leaders and laypeople some thoughtful, helpful, and provocative reflec; Print version: Gospel in a Pluralist Society
Foolishness to the Greeks : the Gospel and Western culture by Lesslie Newbigin( Book )

39 editions published between 1986 and 2007 in 6 languages and held by 785 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book, Lesslie Newbigin attempts to look at modern Western culture through the eyes of an outsider and to ask, "What would it mean to confront this culture with the gospel?" Newbigin looks first at the broad issues raised by any cross-cultural communication of the gospel. He then focuses his discussion on modern Western culture, examining its essential features and the present signs of its disintegration. This leads to the main thrust of the book--the question of how biblical authority can be a reality for those who are shaped by this culture. Newbigin goes on to consider what would be involved in the encounter between the gospel and modern science, politics, and economics. Finally, he discusses the task of the church in bringing about this missionary encounter

A walk through the Bible by Lesslie Newbigin( )

12 editions published between 1999 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 576 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Shortly before he died in 1998, Lesslie Newbigin recorded a series of eight radio addresses on the basic themes and central figures in the Bible. These addresses, which form the basis of this book, affirm the Bible as the story of the history of humankind ... Newbigin invites readers to join him on a journey from Genesis through Revelation, introducing the great biblical figures along the way - Moses, Noah, the prophets, Paul, and, of course, Jesus. His characteristically lucid prose, reflecting a lifetime of faithful teaching and preaching, both challenges and inspires the reader to a deeper level of Christian discipleship ... This retelling of the Bible story in compact form is for individuals, teachers, clergy, and adult study groups"--BOOK JACKET

Truth to tell : the gospel as public truth by Lesslie Newbigin( Book )

21 editions published between 1991 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 450 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"An important book for all who are concerned with the impact of Christianity on today's world, Truth To Tell affirms the gospel as the truth - not only for personal life but also for life at the public, societal level." "In emphasizing the Christian gospel as the truth that calls for radical conversion, Lesslie Newbigin runs counter to the prevailing subjectivism and skepticism in our society regarding the possibility of knowing ultimate truth. Societies like ours that have undergone "modernization" tend to regard the world's religions as agencies for the cultivation of privately held religious opinions -- agencies that can be studied with the tools of sociology, psychology, and other secular disciplines." "But, says Newbigin, the Christian church is not simply an agency that stands for good personal values. In three pointed chapters -- "Believing and Knowing the Truth," "Affirming the Truth in the Church," and "Speaking the Truth to Caesar" -- Newbigin develops the argument that the Christian gospel is a statement of objective, historical truth, and all other modes of thought are to be evaluated in the light of the gospel truth." "Directed especially to ministers and concerned laypeople, Truth To Tell consists of the Osterhaven lectures delivered by Newbigin at Western Theological Seminary in Holland, Michigan. Book jacket."--BOOK JACKET

11 editions published between 1973 and 1997 in English and held by 369 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Thousands of books have been written on the Fourth Gospel, but few have had the lasting impact of this modern classic by respected missiologist Lesslie Newbigin. Developed over a period of thirty years during which Newbigin led Bible studies as a bishop in the Church of South India, this excellent commentary on John is unique both in its power to prepare pastors and teachers to effectively declare the Word of God to others and in its ability to clearly communicate John's message to contemporary western readers"--Amazon.com

In this brilliant and tightly reasoned volume, well-known author Lesslie Newbigin analyzes the sources of truth and authority in the modern world.

Trinitarian faith and today's mission by Lesslie Newbigin( Book )

6 editions published between 1963 and 1964 in English and held by 257 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Demonstrates how the doctrine of the Trinity illuminates three crucial problems: the diminishing influence of Christianity in the world, the increasing secularization of life, and the immobilization of much of the missionary movement. Shows how a Trinitarian faith teaches us to accept God's work outside the Church and not to judge the Christian mission by its apparent success or failure. Teaches us that the spheres of life are subject to Christ, not to the Church, and that through secularization God can lead mankind to the ultimate issue of faith or unbelief in Christ. Also a Trinitarian faith teaches us to trust the Spirit to provide the essential resources for witness and growth in newly founded Christian communities
