Jeffrey P. Greenman and Gene L. Green edit this collection of essays from the proceedings of the 2011 Wheaton Theology Conference. The essays explore the past, present and future shape of biblical interpretation and theological engagement in the Majority World. Leading scholars from around the world interact with the key theological issues being discussed in their regions. In addition, some theological voices from minority communities in North America address issues particular to their context and which often overlap with those central in Majority World theology. Contributors include Vince Bacote, Samuel Escobar, Ken Gnanakan, James Kombo, Mark Labberton, Terry LeBlanc, Juan Martínez, Ruth Padilla DeBorst, Lamin Sanneh, Andrew Walls, K. K. Yeo and Amos Yong.

About the Author:

Jeffrey P. Greenman (PhD, University of Virginia) is academic dean and associate professor of theology and ethics at Regent College in Vancouver, BC, Canada. He is coauthor of Unwearied Praises: Exploring Christian Faith Through Classic Hymns and Understanding Jacques Ellul. He is coeditor of numerous books including The Sermon on the Mount Through the Centuries, Reading Romans Through the Centuries: From the Early Church to Karl Barth and The Decalogue Through the Centuries: From the Hebrew Scriptures to Benedict XIV. Greenman is a member of the Society of Christian Ethics and the American Academy of Religion.

Review:

"This book is an invaluable addition to the growing literature on global theology. It is well suited for use as a textbook for seminary classes on the contextualization and globalization of theology, as it exposes students to a representative range of theologies, sensitive evaluations of the current state of local theology in each context, and provides a framework for thinking about these contextual theologies. Missiologists will be encouraged and stimulated by the fresh call given by the book's many contributors to see traditional Western theology for what it is―one of many contextual theologies." (Richard Hibbert, Missiology, 41(3))

"Global Theology in Evangelical Perspective is an excellent introduction for better understanding what is happening theologically outside the Western church." (Stephen J. Strauss, Bibliotheca Sacra, October-December 2013)

"It is noteworthy and refreshing to see more and more newly released mission-related books intentionally inclusive of global voices." (Marvin J. Newell, Evangelical Missions Quarterly, January 2013)
