Inculturation models

a specific-identity focus, because it relates to the
world in terms of what Christianity has to offer and not what the world has
to offer Christianity.
The latter would be more the tendency of the general identity focus adherents, who often emphasize the presence of the Holy Spirit in the world prior to the explicit presence of Christianity.
Again, the divergent approaches need not be contradictory; they can be complementary.
