This book will challenge and encourage you to develop a more complete understanding of God as you are exposed to the spiritual narratives of other cultures. The Global God incorporates the theological wisdom of leading evangelical scholars, both male and female, from a variety of cultural backgrounds, including Hispanic, Caribbean, Nigerian, Ghanaian, Chinese, and Korean. These Christian scholars from around the world discuss faith in their culture by relating which attributes of God they understand least and most. The result is a "global Christian manifesto" that encompasses a diverse collection of theological viewpoints.
A global Christian manifesto in which contributors examine attributes of God--the ones that are most understood in today's culture and the ones that need to be more fully apprehended.
