"These essays, drawn from the Wheaton Theology Conference of 2011, explore the past, present and future shape of biblical interpretation and theological engagement in the Majority World. Leading scholars from around the world interact with the key theological issues being discussed in their regions. These global perspectives are interspersed with theological voices from minority communities in North America addressing issues particular to their context that interplay with those found in different regions of the Majority World."--Back cover.
