Clearly Uncomfortable with Contextualization

Some people are really uncomfortable with contextualization, even though we all do it and benefit from it all the time.   What is it, anyway?...well here's one definition...Contextualization is "the attempt to communicate the message of the person, works, Word, and will of God in a way that is faithful to God's revelation...and that is meaningful to respondents in their respective cultural and existential contexts" (Hesselgrave and Rommen 2000, 200)
