Inklings

I'm addicted to books. According to Umberto Eco I am building an anti-library, meaning I own way more books than I have read. I love good fiction, literature, theology, Biblical studies, philosophy, children's books, and lots more.

Theology in the Context of World Christianity: How the Global Church Is Influencing the Way We Think about and Discuss Theology - Timothy C. Tennent I found this book to be an easy book to read...the topics that Dr. Tennent covers, however, aren't so easy to work through. He tackles major topic of systematic theology from a different point of view than many of us have taken--a non-Western one. While doing this, he does not condemn our culture and theology, but rather asks us to engage in conversation with the Global Church, realizing that there are other voices that need to be heard. This book really serves as an introduction into this concept and left me wanting to learn more and discover more theologians from around the world from which to learn.
