Since the middle of the twentieth century the church in the western world has been enriched by the many theological and moral contributions that have emanated from the southern hemisphere. This book is the first in a series that reveals that enrichment. Readers will discover scholars from Brazil, Puerto Rico, Nigeria, South Africa, Germany and the United States discussing many issues and concerns that emerge from their respective contexts as the basis for an expanded global conversation.
This book is the first in a series on World Christianity and Public Religion that promises translations in both Portuguese and English for the expansion of transnational conversations among religious scholars. By giving priority to voices from the global south it reveals new perspectives on liberation theology, decolonization, mass migration, racial, gender and sexual inequalities, poverty, human rights, globalization, conflicting theological traditions and much more.
This book should be read by all who are interested in learning how and why the perspectives of theological and religious scholars in the southern hemisphere differ from those in Europe and North America.
