About "The Scm Dictionary of Third World Theologies (2nd Edition)"
This reference work is unique. It makes available in one volume the breadth and richness devoted to issues specifically related to the Third World and its theological concerns. It is written solely by the people normally relegated to the periphery. The contributors are men and women of the Third World, including indigenous peoples from different continents, diasporans who find homes outside their native lands, and marginalised people who inhabit the so-called First World. The Dictionary contains over 150 short entries on themes such as 'Asia', 'Capitalism', 'Colonisation', 'Feminism', 'Globalisation', 'Orthodox Theologies', 'Poverty', and 'Racism'. They are inclusive of geographical, cultural and denominational variations. The SCM Press Dictionary of Third World Theologies is an invaluable resource for all academics, students, ministers and lay people who are interested in theological issues from a global perspective.
