African Proverbs Reveal Christianity in Culture
A Narrative Portrayal of Builsa Proverbs Contextualizing Christianity in Ghana
Imprint: Pickwick Publications
"Drawing on solid theoretical foundations in anthropology, epistemology, and communications, Jay Moon takes us on an exciting journey into the world of African proverbs to demonstrate how to engage Scripture with culture. Written as a riveting story with missiological reflection, this is the practical guide to doing contextualization we've been waiting for. The implications of his application of contextualization go well beyond Africa and so this book is a 'must read' for any serious student of contextualization and missiology."

"Jay's work with Ghanaian proverbs is one of the deepest, most practical examples of missionary teaching/learning I have ever seen. Getting down to the proverbial level of local language and culture has paid off handsomely in his situation. Now he has done missionaries and local leaders young and old a great favor by sketching why it worked, how it worked, and how it can work for them. What could be more useful for mission today? Read and do!"
