thanks for this jonny. when i read the shape of things to come i thought that the approach to culture wasn't particularly positive within that - seem to think that it was akin to a translational model of culture - it even includes Kraft's dynamic equivalence.

Hey, don't knock dynamic equivalence! It's not translation!

Hi guys, thanks for the review Jonny. This seems to me to be a continuous and growing fault line. That rather strange 'tribes' thing we went on was actually pretty important to me because I realised there that my basic stance towards the 'cosmos' is that I love it! But I struggle that the majority of those who retain a passion for 'mission' generally retain a fearful/hateful attitude to the world, while many of those who are more positive about the world appear to be at best confused about mission.


ben, si hi! al and deb are certainly not hateful towards the world. that would be a huge overstatement... but yes si i totally get what you are saying though i think there are a lot more people who do love it as you say and are passionate about mission. there's at least three of us talking here...

Good stuff, Jonny. Nice to read a review that has good balance - positive comments and challenge! Thanks.
