Learning about Theology from the Third World

Written by William A. Dyrness Reviewed By Craig Blomberg

Here is one of the best descriptions, written by a Westerner, of the major developments in Third World theology. Dyrness surveys, in turn, African attempts to relate to traditional culture, Latin American liberation theology, and Asian interaction with the transcendent in Eastern religions. While clearly conservative, Dyrness does a better job than many in listening to other voices and assessing them sympathetically before turning to any necessary criticisms. The volume affords an excellent and readable introduction to a remarkable array of foreign works, not all equally accessible in the English-speaking world.
