The Global Dictionary of Theology is inspired by the shift of the center of Christianity from the West to the Global South. But it also reflects the increase in two-way traffic between these two sectors as well as the global awareness that has permeated popular culture to an unprecedented degree.
The editorial perspective of the Global Dictionary of Theology is an ecumenical evangelicalism that is receptive to discovering new facets of truth through listening and conversation on a global scale. Thus a distinctive feature of the Global Dictionary of Theology is its conversational approach. Contributors have been called on to write in the spirit of engaging in a larger theological conversation in which alternative views are expected and invited.
William A. Dyrness, Veli-Matti Kärkkäinen, Juan F. Martinez and Simon Chan edit approximately 250 articles written by over 100 contributors representing the global spectrum of theological perspectives.
Pastors, theological teachers, theological students and lay Christian leaders will all find the Global Dictionary of Theology to be a resource that unfolds new dimensions and reveals new panoramas of theological perspective and inquiry. Here is a new launching point for doing theology in today's global context.
Veli-Matti Kärkkäinen is professor of systematic theology at Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena, California. He has published numerous articles in international journals of theology. His books include Pneumatology, Christology, Toward a Pneumatological Theology, An Introduction to Ecclesiology, Trinity and Religious Pluralism, The Doctrine of God and One with God.
Juan Francisco Martinez is assistant dean for the Hispanic church studies department and associate professor of Hispanic studies and pastoral leadership at Fuller Theological Seminary. He has taught in Guatemala and is the author of Sea la Luz: The Making of Mexican Protestantism in the American Southwest, 1829-1900.
Simon Chan (Ph.D., Cambridge) is Earnest Lau Professor of Systematic Theology at Trinity Theological College in Singapore. He is the author of Man and Sin, Pentecostal Theology and the Christian Spiritual Tradition, Spiritual Theology: A Systematic Study of the Christian Life and Liturgical Theology: The Church as Worshiping Community. He is also the associate editor of the Global Dictionary of Mission Theology.
"This dictionary represents an excellent survey of the current state of Christian theology, and moreover supplies a sound basis for thinking about coming changes in the shape of the Christian world."
"In a setting characterized by our increasing awareness of cultural diversity, few issues are more pressing for the practice of contemporary theology than embracing the contextual nature of all theologies, including our own. This is a landmark volume that serves to simultaneously decenter the assumptions and conclusions of modern, Eurocentric theological traditions from their place of cultural hegemony while inviting them into a new and vibrant conversation as a participant with other voices at the ethnic and global roundtable. This emerging dialogue has the potential to liberate the standard accounts of Western theology from their cultural captivity and to open up new and hopeful vistas of theological inquiry in the service of the local and global church. All those interested in the future of theology and the church will find this work to be an indispensable resource."
"This landmark volume charts the rich interaction taking place between the local and the global in twenty-first-century theology. It is fresh, creative and fascinating. Unlike most dictionaries, it should be read cover to cover, and more than once."
"The editors of the Global Dictionary of Theology have provided readers with a bridge to the theological perspectives that Christianity is offering early in the twenty-first century. The bridge to the past has not been destroyed but has yielded to the vibrancy and theological insight of the Global South. Christians, regardless of their context, now have a theological dictionary that acknowledges new and exciting theological pathways."
