NACFLA Journal: Volume 3 Spring 2005

Study of the interface between Christian belief and education in foreign languages and literatures requires attention to relevant developments not only in disciplines such as literary studies or applied linguistics, but also in theology. Theological reflection on cultural difference and relationships between cultures, while far from being the only relevant theological discussion, is particularly pertinent. A recent work that deserves the attention of scholars concerned with Christianity and education in foreign languages and literatures is the recent collection of essays by prominent missiologist Andrew Walls published under the title The Cross-Cultural Process in Christian History (Maryknoll, NY: Orbis/Edinburgh: T&T Clark, 2002).
