Theological education, like theology itself, is becoming a truly global enterprise. As such, theological education has to form, teach, and train leaders of faith communities prepared to lead in a transnational world. The teaching of theology with a global awareness has to wrestle with the nature and scope of the theological curriculum, teaching methods, and the context of learning. Teaching Global Theologies directly addresses both method and content by identifying local resources, successful pedagogies of inclusion, and best practices for teaching theology in a global context.

The contributors to Teaching Global Theologies are Catholic, mainline Protestant, and evangelical scholars from different racial and ethnic backgrounds, each with sustained connections with other parts of the world. Teaching Global Theologies capitalizes on this diversity to uncover neglected sources for a global theology even as it does so in constructive conversation with the long tradition of Christian thought. Bringing missing voices and neglected theological sources into conversation with the historical tradition enriches that tradition even as it uncovers questions of power, race, ethnicity, class, gender, and sexuality. Teachers are offered successful pedagogies for bringing these questions into the classroom and best practices to promote students' global consciousness, shape them as ecclesial leaders, and form them as global citizens.

Review:

"Now that Christianity has become truly global, the need to teach theology in a global and transnational context is more urgent than ever. Kwok Pui-Lan and her associates, all of them veteran practitioners and teachers of theology in a variety of venues and in different countries, offer here a treasure-trove of concrete suggestions distilled from their experiences. I most strongly recommend the book as required reading to all people―administrators, faculty, staff, and students―involved in theological teaching and learning."―Peter C. Phan, The Ignacio Ellacuría , S.J. Chair of Catholic Social Thought, Georgetown University

"In a globalizing world, theology has no choice but to become global as well. The chapters of this book present helpful models for alternative ways to become truly global, addressing roadblocks, such as power differentials, and making constructive suggestions for another way forward that embraces complexity and hybridity."―Joerg Rieger, Wendand-Cook Professor of Constructive Theology, Perkins School of Theology, SMU

"As contemporary Christianity continues to move beyond its Eurocentric moorings to embrace a truly global and transnational World Christianity, Teaching Global Theologies: Power and Praxis is well positioned to become the definitive resource and yardstick for rethinking and re-visioning theological education that will prepare new leaders who are formed and equipped to lead their increasingly diverse and pluralistic communities in this new global and transnational reality."―Jonathan Y. Tan, Archbishop Paul J. Hallinan Professor of Catholic Studies, Case Western Reserve University

"This book, suited best for graduate studies and incorporation into upper level undergraduate lectures, is an admirable and recommended resource for any theological educator's library. It delivers in its commitment to integrating a wide variety of ecumenical voices around teaching theology and globalization."―Mark Chung Hearn, Horizons in Biblical Theology

"This book is of great interest as it relates the discussion of postcolonial reconstruction of theology to the field of theological education. It should inspire new discussions about the reformation not only of the content of theological curricula, but also of their methods and subjects."―Stefan Silber, Mission Studies
