Week 9- Bevans, Chapter 9

The Countercultural model stands in the context of the Christian story and from that perspective attempts to critique and analyze the validity of the surrounding culture measured against the truths of the gospel narrative. The church sees itself as a contrast community, where the gospel is lived out fully in the context of materialism, individualism, etc… This model studies and attempts to understand the context in which the church exists, but it seeeks to shape that context by the “reality of the gospel.”
