Traditional Ritual as Christian Worship

Dangerous Syncretism or Necessary Hybridity?

by R. Daniel Shaw

Highlighting the voices of non-Western scholars, this work recognizes the importance of ritual and ceremony in the life of communities that seek to worship God in ways that reflect culturally appropriate responses to Scripture. The contributors—some of missiology’s leading lights—discuss rituals, beliefs, and practices of diverse peoples,  supporting the conclusion that orthodox Christianity is hybrid Christianity.
