    The authors bring up great discussion points for global theology and helpfully challenge a Western mindset of theological superiority. However, this is an academic book that pushes the boundaries of the English language, creating new words and producing sentences of dizzying complexity. If it was more accessibly written, this book would be rated higher.

    Overall, this is a helpful, and thoroughly academic work (which I don't think should lead to negative reviews), on the need for global conversations for theological discussion, development, and formulation. However, I have a fear that the conversation between Dyrness and Garcia-Johnson (among others) will eventually turn into an unsurprising embrace of syncretism in the world's global contexts where Christianity is growing fastest (think Asia and Africa). As well, I felt a sense that our "Wester Overall, this is a helpful, and thoroughly academic work (which I don't think should lead to negative reviews), on the need for global conversations for theological discussion, development, and formulation. However, I have a fear that the conversation between Dyrness and Garcia-Johnson (among others) will eventually turn into an unsurprising embrace of syncretism in the world's global contexts where Christianity is growing fastest (think Asia and Africa). As well, I felt a sense that our "Western theology" is not for those in other global contexts, which would make the reverse true as well: that "their theology" is not for us in the Western context. It also lends itself to a hermeneutical belief that "my truth" doesn't have to be "your truth," since culture plays such a significant role in theological beliefs. Also, many books like this seem to bash Western theology (be it intentionally or unintentionally), while embracing the diversity in theology that exists in other global contexts. As well, the authors do not clearly define what they mean by "Western" and "non-Western" (e.g., "East... South... Global South... North, etc.). Western theology seems to basically encompass everything from my current (and presupposed), American ideologies with the ideologies of the early Christian church. Space (geography) is most certainly considered, but time is not as much. That is, the "Western mindset" of today cannot be equalized with the "Western mindset" of fifteen hundred years ago, though that is often implied in this book.

    Chapters two and three were great. Some very good points, but too academic and theoretical for me otherwise. Good central points, but maybe too many words for me to make the point. Hopefully you will have a different experience.
