Something to Consider While Contextualizing the Gospel

Multitudes in other civilizations and cultures fo the past have listened responsively to mandarins and mullahs, swamis and gurus, and there is no reason to think that our technological mass media civilization will turn deaf to the importance and influence of words. If it hears no witness to the truth of revelation it is not because the blighting angel of technology has struck it dumb but because indifference in the Christian community allows the words of life to fade from sight and sound.

– Carl Henry, quoted by Carl Trueman in The Wages of Spin, pp. 61-62.
