Product description

This reference work is unique. It makes available in one volume the breadth and richness of the theology devoted to issues specifically related to the Third World and its theological concerns.

It is written solely by the people normally relegated to the periphery. The contributors are men and women of the Third World, including indigenous peoples from different continents, diasporans who find homes outside their native lands, and marginalized people who inhabit the so-called First World.

A quick glance at the current lexicographical works on theological and biblical disciplines shows that they tend to be Western-oriented and written from a Eurocentric perspective. The Third World concerns listed in them are either added as an afterthought or tailored to suit Western protocols and expectations.

This dictionary attempts to redress the balance, viewing everything through the prism of a Third World lens. The Dictionary includes over 150 short entries on themes such as:

'Asia', 'Capitalism', 'Colonization', 'Feminism', 'Globalization', 'Orthodox Theologies', 'Poverty', and 'Racism'.

They are inclusive of geographical, cultural and denominational variations.
