Changing Face of Theology 19 Jun. 2000
By William Turner - Published on
Format: Paperback
Theology is not what it used to be. Gone are the days when Christian theology was considered a white man's profession. Today, and thankfully so other cultures are beginning the long and great journey of doing theology.
Christian Theology is no longer in a Western European context but has reached out into what has been called the "Third World." Dyrness seeks to give an introduction to "Third World Theology."
The First chapter covers introductory materials and argues for the change in theology. The second chapter deals with certain facets of African Theology and their culture ramifications which they bring to the task. Thirdly, he deals with Latin American Theology, giving emphasis to Liberation Theology. The fourth chapter deals with Asian Theology and the idea of the transcedent and wholly other. In the fifth chapter he takes a particular doctrine (Christology) and examines it in light of the three "Third World Theologies." Lastly he charts a course for the future of theology.
This book was especially helpful in showing that all theology contains pressupositions that shape and mold the particular theology. This book will surely raise many questions and will also help "enlighten" the American Theologian.
