IVP - Addenda & Errata - The Future of Global Theology

The Future of Global Theology

This week the Global Dictionary of Theology (GDT), edited by William A. Dyrness and Veli-Matti Kärkkäinen, was released. It’s a happy event for all of us who have been involved with this project. The GDT is a unique theological resource, and we think it will quickly find its place in classrooms, studies and libraries.

In celebration of this event, next Thursday, October 23, there will be a colloquium on “The Future of Global Theology” at Fuller Theological Seminary. It takes place from 11:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

Here’s a brief description: “With the historic shift of Christianity’s center of gravity away from Europe and North America and toward the global south, questions naturally arise: What will theology look like in the coming generations? What is the future of Western-style academic theology? The Global Dictionary of Theology was conceived to address these issues by proposing that theology is a growing worldwide conversation that connects with historic Christian traditions. This symposium will address the larger question of what future, if any, such global theology might have.”

Participants include the GDT general editors, Dyrness and Kärkkäinen, its associate editors, Juan Martinez and Simon Chan, and one of the contributors, Ogbu Kalu of McCormick Theological Seminary. I’ll also make a few remarks on the nature of the GDT.

This event is open to all. If you are in the L.A. area, come on over to Pasadena on the 23rd. You will find further information on Fuller’s website.
