|This book documents an unprecedented three-year study centered on
the story of the encounter of Jesus with a Samaritan woman. The study
involved a unique partnership of committed and creative ordinary

book starts with a through description of the research project together
with colorful windows on the actual experience of groups who read the
John 4 story and interacted with other readers from very different
cultural backgrounds. It continues with several case studies that
helpfully focus and deepen these observations, with special attention
to contextual and intercontextual dynamics. Then follow critical
analyses of various dimensions of the hermeneutical and communication
process involved in the experience. Finally, a number of implications
are drawn for practical theology and theological education,
hermeneutical practices and studies, and ecumenical and missiological
