In This Book:
Dave Johnson takes a thorough look at the culture of one of the Filipino people groups with a view toward developing a contextual theology that is biblically accurate, missiologically sound and culturally relevant throughout the Filipino lowlands. He delves deep, seeking to understand the religious worldview assumptions that underpin and drive the various religious practices and the people who are involved in them. Some of the specific issues he tackles are:

– All Saints’ Day and the dead returning to their gravesites
– Praying to Mary and the Saints
– Demon possession
– Town Fiestas
– Sickness and healing
– How people have been transformed by the power of God within their own cultural setting, both in the past and present
– And much more!
