Chapter Summary

This concluding chapter of the book, which focuses on two main areas, namely the new discovery of a cross-cultural hermeneutic and the implications of this hermeneutic as it competes with Western modes of biblical interpretation. The book shows how Paul creatively appropriated ancient cultural modes to communicate the gospel to his audience. It explores the implications and limitations of cross-cultural hermeneutics. Cross-cultural hermeneutics allow indigenous people to be the subjects of biblical interpretation. In other words, it empowers lay and uneducated people to participate in biblical interpretation. Cross-cultural hermeneutics allow peoples of the world to live as brothers and sisters.

Keywords: cross-cultural hermeneutics; gospel; Paul
