Majority World Theology: Christian Doctrine in Global Context

Green, Pardue, Yeo, Eds.

IVP Academic

More Christians now live in the Majority World than in Europe and North America. Yet most theological literature does not reflect the rising tide of Christian reflection coming from these regions. If we take seriously the Spirit’s movement around the world, we must consider how the rich textures of Christianity in the Majority World can enliven, inform, and challenge all who are invested in the ongoing work of theology. Majority World Theology offers an unprecedented opportunity to enter conversations on the core Christian doctrines with leading scholars from around the globe. Seeking to bring together the strongest theological resources from past and present, East and West, the volume editors have assembled a diverse team of contributors to develop insights informed by questions from particular geographic and cultural contexts. This book features

  • a comprehensive overview of systematic theology, with sections on the Trinity, Christology, pneumatology, soteriology, ecclesiology, and eschatology
  • contributors including Amos Yong, Ruth Padilla DeBorst, Victor I. Ezigbo, Wonsuk Ma, Aída Besançon Spencer, Randy S. Woodley, Munther Isaac, and Veli-Matti Kärkkäinen
  • explorations of how Scripture, tradition, and culture fit together to guide the church’s theological reflection
  • scholars demonstrating how to read the Bible and think theologically in light of contextual resources and concerns
  • inside views on what doing theology looks like in contributors’ contexts and what developments they hope for in the future

When we learn what it means for Jesus to be Lord in diverse places and cultures, we grasp the gospel more fully and are more able to see the blind spots of our own local versions of Christianity. Majority World Theology provides an essential resource for students, theologians, and pastors who want to expand their theological horizons.

Grace Ji-Sun Kim

Pilgrim Press

“In difficult times, we can only run on hope.” With practicality and vulnerability, author and public theologican Grace Ji-Sun Kim reflects on the practice of sustaining hope during turbulence and injustice. Each reflection invites a conversation on culture and faith, as the author appeals to readers to engage life’s troubles with the conviction of God’s goodness. Hope in Disarray takes the world’s pain seriously in order to ignite our intentional, revolutionary living.

“I turned the last page with a fresh infusion of inspiration to live a life of compassionate, sustained action, no matter how difficult the challenges.”
–Brian D. McLaren,
