Global Dictionary of Theology: a Resource for the Worldwide Church
Call Number: BR95 .G56X 2008
This volume brings into conversation theological thinkers from around the globe, especially those from what the editors term “the Global South” (i.e., Latin America, Africa and Asia.)
The volume covers both standard topics of Christian theology (e.g., ecclesiology, sacraments, salvation, etc.) as well as topics more specific to local contexts. The “conversation” among contributors to this volume takes place in a variety of ways: sometimes a single entry is co-authored by a number of authors from different global contexts; sometimes there is a main article authored by one theologian with a response provided by another theologian; and sometimes a single topic is treated by two or more authors in separate entries. Bibliographies are found at the end of each article and cross-references are provided. Two indexes, one on subjects and one on persons are found at the end of the volume. A list of contributors is also provided.
