"A timely contribution to the development of the field of World Christianity."
"Surveys what Christianity looks like in an authentically global context, where North American and European voices still contribute, but no longer govern or dominate how Christianity is studied, taught, and articulated theologically."
These essays describe and analyze a flowering of indigenous forms of Christianity across the global landscape.... The range is broad, the topics generally well chosen, and the scholarship evident. There is something for everyone here, from the professional to the student, from readers’ social location at any point on the compass, and from denominational membership anywhere on the spectrum of Christianity.... Peter Phan’s eagle’s wings hover over these estimable proceedings, which will benefit many in the coming years, and deserve to be not simply in every theological library’s stacks but in many individuals’ hands.
Documenting a particular yet important conversation in world Christianity, this book offers sharp insights to the past, present, and future of this field of studies, exemplifying the creative insights that often emerge from multi/intercultural collaboration.
