Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The concept of globalization takes on a particularly significant and expressive role when coupled with a term like theology. This work of tempered historiography and historical missiology approaches the questions, attitudes, concerns, and methods of the present generation of Evangelicals within the framework of scholarly discourse. Ott and Netland, professors of mission and the philosophy of religion and intercultural studies, respectively, at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School in Illinois, serve as editors of a three-part text: "World Christianity and Theological Reflection," "Methodological Issues for Globalizing Theology," and "Implications of Global Theology." Each part contains distinctive contributions to the field of missiology and probes both the broad and the specific areas of inquiry in various contexts. There is a continued focus on the dynamic connection between "global" and "local" awareness and action, with one contributor citing the fairly new term glocal as the interweaving of necessary entities. This well-crafted book will be useful in theological schools with an interest in missiological discussions; recommended.-Anthony J.
