Theology in Global Perspective

An Orbis Books Series

General Editor: Peter Phan, Georgetown University

This series responds to the challenge to re-examine the foundational and doctrinal themes of Christianity in light of the new global reality, taking into account insights and experiences of churches in Africa, Asia, Latin America and Oceania, as well as Europe and North America.

Rooted in the Catholic tradition, volumes in this series are written with an eye to the ecumenical implications of Protestant, Orthodox, and Pentecostal theology. Authors also explore insights from other religious traditions with the potential to enrich Christian theology and self-understanding. Theology in Global Perspective provides reliable introductions to major theological topics, tracking their roots in scripture and their development in later tradition, exploring whenever possible the impolications of new thinking on gender and sociolcultural identities. The authors relate these themes to the challenges confronting the peoples of the world in the wake of globalization, particularly the implications of Christian faith for justice, peace, and the integrity of creation.
