Series: Majority World Theology (MWT)

Second volume of an exciting new series exploring global theology

Though the global center of Christianity has been shifting south and east over the past few decades, very few theological resources have dealt with the seismic changes afoot. The Majority World Theology series seeks to remedy that lack by gathering well-regarded Christian thinkers from around the world to discuss the significance of Christian teaching in their respective contexts.

The Trinity among the Nations focuses on Christian understandings of the character and work of God in various contexts. The contributors highlight global trends in trinitarian theology in relation to historic Christian confessions, especially the Nicene Creed, and draw out the rich implications of the doctrine of God for the church and Christian living today.

"A prime example of how the perspective of Christians from different global contexts can enrich our understanding of the Triune God Christians around the world worship."
Veli-Matti Kärkkäinen
— Fuller Theological Seminary
"Imagine a book in which theologians from various continents and cultural-linguistic contexts share testimonies and compare notes about the Trinity. Imagine further that these theologians dare to consider the meaning of Trinity from such diverse perspectives as Native American, Chinese Confucian, Latin American liberationist, African traditional, and feminist-maternal. Congratulations - you have found such a book! Highly recommended."
M. Daniel Carroll R.
— Denver Seminary
"Scholarly, informed, and grounded in Majority World realities, these stimulating essays on the doctrine of the Trinity will surely expand readers' horizons and deepen appreciation for other voices."
Charles Farhadian
— Westmont College
"Courageously decenters a narrow Western approach to the crucially important Christian concept of the triune God — Green, Pardue, and Yeo offer bold explorations at the intersection of Trinity and various Majority World cultures. . . . This book and the Majority World Theology series that it represents are welcome contributions to our understanding of world Christianity today."
Joel Carpenter
— Nagel Institute for the Study of World Christianity
"Christian theology follows Christian mission. Wherever the gospel goes, it needs to engage questions that arise from its latest cultural encounters. Now that most of the world's Christians live outside of the faith's former strongholds in Europe and European settlements, Christian thinking has much new work to do. . . . Kudos to the authors and editors for presenting this work."
