Saving God’s Face

Saving God’s Face is a sophisticated and thoughtful monograph written at the intersection of Chinese culture, contextualization theory, and debates about the New Perspective on Paul. Wu leverages a dialogical theory of contextualization in order to show how honor-shame concepts in Chinese culture can help Christians understand the ‘glory’ and ‘honor’ images found in the Bible. While not specific to Cambodian culture, it is a useful tool for anyone ministering in an Asian context. This is an excerpt. The whole book can be purchased on
