The greatest change which has come about in Christian theology over the last generation has been the explosion of contextual theologies in different parts of the world. This book provides the first overview of the main trends and contributions to Christian thought of Third World theologies. It sets out the common context of these theologies in their experience of colonialism and western missions, and suggests that they have forged new ways of doing theology which are quite distinct from the theological traditions of the western world. With key contributions from experts in their fields on Latin America, India, East Asia, West and East Africa, Southern Africa and the Caribbean, this book situates Christian thought in the cultural and socio-political contexts of their respective regions, and demonstrates how Third World theologies are providing different perspectives on what it means to be a Christian in today's global world.

'This is an excellent title for theological students and others looking for an overview of the subject ... This book looks at Muslims' beliefs and practices, as they developed from their origins to the current day. It is suitable for anyone seeking more knowledge on the place of Islam in today's world conflicts.' Publishing News '... a fascinating window into how theology is being reshaped within a variety of Third World contexts.' Simon Topping '... this book will help us to get to know our neighbours. We are the minority in the twenty-first century.' Anvil ' ... this book is an admirable introduction written by experts and would serve as an excellent basic text for courses in contextual theology.' Themelios '... this book will help us to get to know our neighbours. We are the minority in the twenty-first century.' Christian Doctrine and Philosophy
