Paradigms from Luke-Acts for Multicultural Communities


Richard B. Harms

This book proposes a theology of mission that is simultaneously Evangelical, Catholic, and Liberationist. The biblical foundation is Luke-Acts and the context is the church in California. The focus is on mission and ministry with the fastest-growing ethnic/cultural minority population, Latino/Latina. Although there is a historical research basis for this book, the emphasis is on the current practice and future praxis. First-century Lukan paradigms lead to a proclamation based on service and salvation: The Good News is for the poor and for every nation under Heaven.
