The Modern Churchman


The Modern Churchman (1977), 20, (4), 164–173.


The problem of syncretism between Christianity and other religions is not solely the problem of the missionary. Nonetheless, it is in its missions that the Church confronts this problem most concretely. To do so adequately, however, she must first unsaddle her interpretation of the gospel from its own outdated cosmological outlook: as contained, for example, in the mythological structure of a three-storied universe. So, too, must she begin to recognize and appropriate philosophies of nature other than her own, as well as to incarnate the gospels into myths foreign to her own traditions.
