The 3D Gospel is an excellent, eye-opening treatment. Jayson Georges’s research, scriptural insights, and use of these three worldview lenses is of great value to those of us who minister to and with the nations.” –Jeffrey A. Gill (D.Min., Ph.D.), Vice President and Dean, Grace Theological Seminary

“The 3D Gospel makes significant cultural concepts approachable and easy to see. Thank you Jayson for helping people grasp the complexity of global cultures and its implications for Christian mission.” -Judith Lingenfelter (Ph.D.) Professor of Intercultural Studies, Biola University

“I am excited that The 3D Gospel  is now available. It is a practical guide for Christians who want to see how different types of cultures and worldviews influence how we read the Bible and develop mission strategies.” –Jackson Wu (Ph.D.), seminary teacher in Asia, author of Saving God’s Face.

“With many of our worlds colliding — modern, postmodern, Western, Eastern, immigrant, expatriate, etc., The 3D Gospel provides the needed “color-correction” to our lenses when presenting the gospel. If you’re wondering what might be missing as you communicate the gospel outside of your home context, read The 3D Gospel — there simply is no other resource like it.” –David Park, pastor of Open Table Community and host of Next Gener.Asian Church

Ministering in Honor-Shame Cultures

3DMockUp NoShadows SmallFor a more extensive book about honor-shame in biblical theology and practical ministry, see Ministering in Honor-Shame Culturesby Jayson Georges and Mark Baker (IVP Academic, 2016). This full-length book provides a complete biblical theology of salvation-history and Christian ministry for honor-shame contexts.

Georges and Baker have taken the seeds of previous work on honor and shame in the environment of the biblical world and in modern cultures and cultivated them into fruitful insights and guidance in the areas of theology, crosscultural engagement and, especially, missions.
~David A. deSilva, distinguished professor, Ashland Theological Seminary

An exceptional book on this timeless worldview and timely topic. The authors interweave real life stories to help us rediscover a biblical worldview and see how to apply the living Word of God today.
~Samuel E. Chiang, president and CEO, Seed Company

Every message bearer working in non-Western cultures needs to read and apply the insights and principles of this book if they are to avoid the typical cultural blunders too often committed by too many. Within are crucial insights for effective crosscultural ministry.
~Marvin J. Newell, senior VP, Missio Nexus
