The Global God: Multicultural Evangelical Views of God

Full Product Description

In The Global God: Multicultural Evangelical Views of God, editors William and Aída Besançon Spencer challenge readers to develop a fuller understanding of the Triune God of the Bible by listening to the theological narratives of other cultures.


The Global God brings together the keen theological insights of leading evangelical scholars, both men and women, from various cultural backgrounds, including North American, Hispanic, Caribbean, Nigerian, Ghanaian, Chinese, and Korean.


The first chapter articulates the attributes of God found in the Scriptures. In each of the essays that follow, Christians from around the world evaluate the state of theology in their culture, first explaining which attribute of God is best understood in their society and then considering the attribute their culture most often neglects.


The goal of this book, the editors write, [is] to capture different perspectives . . . of the individual God. Through these subtleties of perception, a united image of the paradoxical attributes of God operant in various cultures that comprise today's world emerges: loving power, righteous love, holy strangeness, transcendent immanence, unique creating, traditional uniqueness, merciful holiness, transcendent presence, purposeful holiness, and kingdom-making healing.


The result is a global Christian manifesto giving voice to a number of diverse theologies and allowing readers an opportunity to reevaluate their own understanding of God
