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 voices of Christian communities from across the globe. Introducing Christian Theologies explores the works of key theologians from around the world, highlighting their unique contributions to Christian theology and doctrine.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"Introducing Christian Theologies: Voices from Global Christian Communities 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. It includes the standard canon of theologians from early church figures . . . [but] moves thoroughly into the twenty-first century with numerous contemporary theologians and debates."
--Timothy Larsen, McManis Professor of Christian Thought, Wheaton College

"The great strengths of this book are its structure and clarity, as well as the ecumenical and global perspectives it provides for beginning students of theology. Unlike other books that purport to be introductory in nature, this one really is for absolute beginners, which fills an urgent need of theological educators today . . . This book ranks among the best top picks for an introductory course in theology."
--Bradley Nassif, Professor of Biblical and Theological Studies, North Park University

"It is a rare treat to read about theological 'classics' such as Irenaeus, Augustine, and Calvin, juxtaposed with more recent greats--from Ratzinger to Gutierrez, from Zizioulas to Solle, from Mbiti to Samartha. Ezigbo's comprehensive yet succinct text introduces students to core doctrines of the faith while sampling the growing theological vigor coming from Africa, Asia, and Latin America."
--Alexander Chow, Chancellor's Fellow in World Christianity, School of Divinity, University of Edinburgh

"Ezigbo displays his facility with both traditional Western sources and with emerging, global perspectives. Written in clear prose and containing case studies, helpful excerpts from primary sources, and questions to prompt discussions, the book is an excellent textbook for undergraduate theology and religion classes as well as a great resource for introducing seminary students to theology in a fresh, accessible, and diverse way."
--Kyle Roberts, Associate Professor of Public and Missional Theology, United Seminary
