Theology in the Context of World Christianity: How the Global Church Is Influencing the Way We Think about and Discuss Theology

June 1, 2011

The basic problem is that Western systematic theologies are still written with a Christendom mind-set, assuming the absence of rival theistic claims as well as rival sacred texts. They tend to be overly preoccupied with philosophical objections to the Christian message, rather than with religious objections based on sacred texts or major social traditions that contradict the claims of Scripture (Theology in the Context of World Christianity, [Grand Rapids: Zondervan, 2007], 257).
