Crosscurrents in Majority World and Minority Theology

  Conveners: Gene Green      Email conveners

As Christianity continues to expand in the global South and East, demand has grown for thoughtful biblical hermeneutics and theological analysis that addresses the concerns of the Majority World as well as minority Christians. This study group aims to harness this promising moment by addressing themes central to Majority World and minority biblical studies and theology that often find no place in western discussions around traditional theological loci. The group encourages engagement with the best resources from World Christianity, especially bringing the next generation of Majority World and minority scholars into dialog with each other.

The topic for 2021 will be “Theologies of Identities.” We will be inviting key contributors to present papers at IBR on Friday afternoon.
