Overview

This work by a group of prominent international scholars makes a strong statement about theological reflection in today’s global context. Working with a variety of themes and from diverse perspectives, the contributors call for a radical change in the way we construct theological paradigms, speaking instead for a theology that effectively engages in a dialogue with the social, economic, political, and cultural texts in which it participates.

Produced in honor of Richard Shaull, these essays present an ecumenical theology that is respectful of cultures, sensitive to historical context, and critical of racism, classism, imperialism, and other forces that marginalize people’s lives.

Editorial Reviews

Encounter
"Through diverse voices, the book serves to remind us once again of the "revolution in spirit" to which we are being called through honest dialogue with our global neighbors and the mysterious work of God within our hearts.... In a world of brokenness, the book further serves to direct us in our faith journeys to definite reservoirs of Christian hope that may yet lead us closer toward an abundant life."
