Volf on Relating to Culture

“There is no single correct way to relate to a given culture as a whole, or even to its dominant thrust. There are only numerous ways of accepting, transforming, rejecting, or replacing various aspects of a given culture from within. This is what it means for Christian difference to be internal to a given culture.”

– Miroslav Volf in It is Like Yeast

  1. Excellent. It is also what makes it impossible to export as a set of social or governmental doctrines. (See Afghanistan.) What Wycliffe is doing with the Chronological Bible Storying is in line with Volf’s point.
