Description

In Journeys to New Life, Identity, and Community, Dr. Peter K. Yun explores the complexities of identity for Muslim background believers (MBBs) in Bangladesh. Encompassing scholarship surrounding contextualization and the insider movement, as well as extensive personal interviews with Bangladeshi MBBs, this book offers insight into the lived reality of following Christ within a Muslim context. Yun identifies three primary approaches to negotiating social identity within MBB communities and examines the potential strengths and weaknesses of each, as well as the implications for believers navigating the gospel's call to be within culture and simultaneously beyond it.


This book offers careful anthropological observation while speaking to missiological concerns and offering practical suggestions for local believers, practitioners, and future scholars. It is a powerful resource for anyone passionate about God's work in Muslim contexts.
