Global research is clear: The center of Christianity has shifted from the West to the global South and East. While the truths of the Christian faith are universal, new contexts bring new questions, new understandings, and new expressions.
What does this mean for theology? Is the Christian faith not only culturally translatable, but also theologically translatable? In Theology in the Context of World Christianity Video Lectures and its accompanying book, Theology in the Context of World Christianity, author Timothy Tennent answers this question with a resounding yes.
Theological reflection is alive and well in the majority world church, and these new perspectives need to be heard, considered, and brought into conversation with Western theologians. Global theology can make us aware of our own blind spots and biases. Largely conservative in its stance, global theology has much to offer toward the revitalization of Western Christianity.
Theology in the Context of World Christianity Video Lectures examines traditional theological concepts in conversation with theologians across the globe, making these sessions valuable for students, pastors, missionaries, and theologians alike.
