Product Description

As the global center of Christianity shifts south and east, theological frameworks must also adapt.

Publisher's Description

Though the global center of Christianity has been shifting south and east over the past few decades, very few theological resources have dealt with the seismic changes afoot. The Majority World Theology series seeks to remedy that lack by gathering well-regarded Christian thinkers from around the world to discuss the significance of Christian teaching in their respective contexts.
 
The contributors to this volume reflect deeply on the role of the Holy Spirit in both the church and the world in dialogue with their respective contexts and cultures. Taking African, Asian, and Latin American cultural contexts into account gives rise to fresh questions and insights regarding the Spirit’s work as witnessed in the world and demonstrates how the theological heritage of the West is not adequate alone to address the theological necessities of communities worldwide.

Editorial Reviews

Lamin Sanneh
—Yale Divinity School
"This book discusses a foundational subject—the role of the Holy Spirit in the work and witness of the global church. It is appropriate that the coming of world Christianity should move discussion of the Holy Spirit to front and center for communities of faith across the world. The authors are to be congratulated for bringing to our attention the diverse and lively ways in which we see the Spirit's manifestation in our midst today."

Christopher J. H. Wright
—Langham Partnership
"This book provides all of us with a kind of stereophonic listening to one another across the cultures that shape us but should not define us as Christians. The whole Majority World Theology series promises to be a refreshingly reciprocal contribution to global theology."

Emmanuel Katongole
—University of Notre Dame
"A well-written and much-needed book. Through these essays the reader travels around the world and gets a flavor of the rich theological ferment under way in world Christianity."

Joel Carpenter
—Nagel Institute for the Study of World Christianity
"Christian theology follows Christian mission. Wherever the gospel goes, it needs to engage questions that arise from its latest cultural encounters. Now that most of the world's Christians live outside of the faith's former strongholds in Europe and European settlements, Christian thinking has much new work to do. . . . Kudos to the authors and editors for presenting this work."
