African Voices: Towards African British Theologies

  • Editor: Israel Oluwole Olofinjana

Introducing an emerging academic field known as African British Theologies, this publication explores the significant presence of African Christianity in Britain. Featuring contributions from twelve scholarly African pastors engaged in ministry and theology in Britain, this book is a unique expression of theology from African Christians, contextualizing the gospel for a multicultural British society. Under three key areas of missiology, contextual constructive theology and transformative practical theology the contributors interact with topics such as reverse missiology, African pneumatology, prosperity gospel, and urban mission. This book rigorously examines new contexts of Christianity and articulates new theological perspectives that are required to understand twenty-first-century ministry, not only in urban Britain, but also across the world.

The emergence of sub-Saharan Africa as a major theater of Christian faith was one of the most striking developments of the twentieth century. The migration to the West of large numbers of African Christians has the potential for hugely important developments within Western Christianity in the twenty-first-century. This book is full of insights into both these factors and provides plenty of food for thought.

Partnership Theology in Creative Access Regions

  • Author: Kenneth Shreve

  • Pages: 208

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

Strategic partnerships are on the rise around the world as denominations, organizations, local churches and individuals seek ways to work together to accomplish the Great Commission. In this book Dr Kenneth Shreve presents research from a creative access region, identifying five theological issues that impact partnership in Christian missions as well as exploring how partners interact with those theological issues.

Partnerships in mission are grounded in relationships, relationships that flow from the Trinity and are manifested in the purpose of God, the body of Christ, the gifts of the Spirit, and the church. Through this book the body of Christ will be encouraged to strengthen cooperation and collaboration in the accomplishment of the Great Commission and achieve far more in partnership than could be done in isolation.

Kenneth Shreve's work is unique because it is original research on the theology of partnership in missions, undertaken in the context of a specific Creative Access Region (CAR). The data collection process includes a survey on attendees of the CAR Consultation and archival study of the biblical and theological material on partnership.

Reincarnation, Oblivion, or Heaven?: A Christian Exploration

  • Author: Bobby Bose
  • Publisher: Langham
  • Publication Date: 2016
  • Pages: 374

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

What is death? Why do we die? and what happens after we die? Over the centuries, philosophers and theologians of the world’s religions have offered answers to the dilemma of death, yet this subject is rarely given the detailed attention it deserves in the contemporary Christian church. As Christians, how does our view of death impact the communication of the gospel in today’s pluralistic societies?

Biblically faithful, well researched, clearly written, challenging and timely. Highly recommended.

Theological Models of the Doctrine of the Trinity: The Trinity, Diversity and Theological Hermeneutics

  • Author: James Henry Owino Kombo

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

The doctrine of the Trinity is the foundational doctrine for all Christian theology, doxology and practice. In this publication James Kombo brings a unique and valuable contribution to understanding the Trinity and how God can be understood within the context of any culture and language.

Kombo first recognizes and brings into focus God's self-presentation in Scripture as the triune God. Moving from the early church through various church traditions over the centuries, he interacts with how each tradition viewed God and their interpretation of the Trinity. Closing with a distinctly African view of God from the Luo language tradition, used mostly in Kenya and Tanzania, Kombo emphasizes the benefits of considering alternative models of interpretation from various regions of the world. Kombo's work applying his research across cultures makes this an excellent resource in any context of ministry and the academy.

James Henry Owino Kombo holds a DTh in Systematic Theology from Stellenbosch University. He currently serves as an Associate Professor of Systematic Theology at Daystar University in Nairobi, Kenya, where he also works as Deputy Vice Chancellor of Academic Affairs. He is a priest in the Anglican Church of Kenya, serving at All Saints Cathedral, Nairobi. He has also spoken in several conferences and is published widely on African Christianity, theology and philosophy, the African independent churches and the different expressions of African theology. James is married to Pamela and together they have three children: Leonida, Philip and Samuel.

Unashamed Servant-Leadership

  • Author: Rachel Rajagopal

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

Asian Christian female servant-leaders have faced painful and humbling experiences in their leadership development - at every turn and at every corner. Asian women who are evangelical servant-leaders rarely have any real "voice" in their community. In this book, Rachel Rajagopal enrolls ten servant-leaders who, speaking as one, seek to have their collective voice heard, recognized and valued. The testimonies of these women's encounters with the Lord Jesus Christ and their personal obedience to God's call, despite their challenges as female ministry leaders, are powerful examples of God using women in his sovereign plan. Many of the hindrances these servant-leaders encountered were simply because God made them women. Dr. Rajagopal's rigorous examination of the Asian social, cultural and theological context in relation to women in Christian leadership allows these stories to jump off the pages and into readers' hearts. This thorough study not only illuminates the Asian context but is eminently transferable to other parts of the world in pursuit of releasing women into their gifting from God.

Rachel Rajagopal's book, Unashamed Servant-Leadership, was birthed from her personal background, secular work experience and Christian ministry involvement. Despite all odds, first as a female, then as an Indian growing up in a Hindu environment, and serving God as a female missionary in Asia, Africa, Latin America and beyond, the author has overcome numerous challenges to become one of Asia's few women who dare to be different and are "unashamed" to be God's leaders! What is most powerful in this book are the snapshots of ten women from different ethnic, social, educational, and single and marital backgrounds, from different countries, including the Middle East, all of whom have risen under different and difficult situations to take on leadership, and, in the process, blossomed and thrived as God's servant-leaders. I trust that many will read this book and that the stories of these daughters of Asia will bless men and women and give courage especially to Asian women to rise up and let God use them for his kingdom work and his greater glory.

In this clear and readable history of Christianity in South Africa, Kevin Roy answers these questions with comprehensive, succinct and rigorous historical analysis with sympathy and honesty. Dr Roy does not shy away from the failures and sins of the participants in this story that intertwines with the history of the peoples and tribes in South Africa. This book is a testimony of divine love and patience in the midst of human folly and frailty, of successes and faithful service to God.

Dr Kevin Roy's history of the South African church is my go-to text every time! For over a decade now, I recommend it in every new member's class and to every one of our pastoral interns. When I lectured at seminary, it was a required text. It's not simply the best, it is the only option! If you want a concise, readable, well-written account, Dr Roy's text is in a league of its own.

Taking Up the Mantle: Latin American Evangelical Theology in the 20th Century

  • Author: J. Daniel Salinas
  • Publisher: Langham
  • Publication Date: 2017
  • Pages: 216

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

In Taking Up the Mantle, Dr. Daniel Salinas helps the reader understand the development of Latin American evangelical theological thought over the past hundred years. Salinas challenges new generations to pick up the task of contextually living out the biblical message, learning from the example of the godly men and women that came before them. History is full of faithful servants who read their Bibles and their surroundings to communicate the message for the church and the world, and this 'double listening', as John Stott referred to it, is required today. From the Panama Congress of 1916 to the end of the millennium, this book introduces us to figures from the Latin American church and encourages us to continue their legacy today.

Daniel Salinas corrects at least two major misconceptions about Latin American theological reflection: that its only expression is liberation theology and that it has been mostly non-existent in evangelical circles. This is a must read to get a comprehensive perspective on Latin American evangelical theologies during the twentieth century.
