About-

Should Christianity's theological face remain largely European and North American in the twenty-first century in the wake of the expansion of Christianity in sub-Saharan Africa, Asia, and Latin America? The question about the "theological face" of Christianity cannot be ignored. For too long African, Asian, and Latin American theologians have been left out of mainstream theological discussions. Few standard textbooks on Christian theology acknowledge the unique contributions theologians from these continents have made to global Christianity. Introducing Christian Theologies: Voices from Global Christian Communities is a two-volume textbook that alters the predominantly European and North American "theological face" of Christianity by interacting with the voices of the Christian communities from around the globe. Introducing Christian Theologies explores the works of key theologians from across the globe, highlighting their unique contributions to Christian theology and doctrine.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"Introducing Christian Theologies is a feast! It covers the major doctrines well while being clear, accessible, engaging, and attractive. It is careful to describe faithfully differing views, but not too timid to evaluate them. . . . Most of all, it moves thoroughly into the twenty-first century with numerous contemporary theologians and debates and with the rich and exciting flavors of Africa, Asia, and Latin America."
--Timothy Larsen, Wheaton College

"Applying the best of contemporary contextualizing methodology, this introduction to Christian theology from a global and ecumenical perspective equips learners to engage a wide variety of perspectives on the major Christian doctrines. . . . Drawing on and interpreting original historical sources in ways today's learners can understand, Victor Ezigbo provides a comprehensive, truly global perspective on key Christian teachings that has been missing in earlier English-language, introductory theological texts."
--Heather Clements, Azusa Pacific University

"By creatively engaging with African, Asian, and Latin American Christian theologians, Ezigbo corrects the 'Euro-American theological face' of world Christianity in this globally relevant introductory textbook for Christian theology."
--Jayachitra Lalitha, Co-Chair of World Christianity Group, American Academy of Religions

"The author, a budding African theologian, brings fresh, robust insights into Christian theology, prioritizing the voices of non-Western theologies in tandem with mainstream theologies, thus bringing them into the global academic limelight. One merit of Introducing Christian Theologies is its pedadogical value and the all-embracing themes and topics. This is a must-read for all those interested in grasping the breadth and richness of the 'theological face' of global Christianity in the twenty-first century."
--Afe Adogame, The University of Edinburgh, UK
