A problem in world evangelization in the mid 1900s was the crisis in culture or as some preferred to call it, "contextualization". The problem arises when we think of Christianity’s role in the world. The church claims a supernatural origin but it cannot escape human history. Is it to be a thing apart from life in the world? Would it reject the traditions and customs of a people and create new ones? Or should the church adopt completely the life of a people? What if a nation’s art and customs are liked with religious beliefs opposed to the Christian faith?
