"Modern" Christian missions have by now been roundly -- and all too often justly -- condemned as being too closely allied with the secular goals and military power of their home nations. In light of such criticisms, service agencies and mission boards now struggle with proper strategies for mission that is holistic but not culturally intrusive.

That is, of course, no easy order to fill. But in the probing, stimulating chapters of this book, theologian C. Norman Kraus suggests how Christians might "intervene" in other cultures with a gospel that at once embraces "humanitarian" service and "spiritual" salvation.

An Intrusive Gospel? will be of invaluable help and encouragement to missionaries, strategists, developmental agencies, theologians and all others who wrestle with the thorny challenges of Christian mission in the postmodern world
