Theology Out of Place Summary


Theology Out of Place: Walter J.Hollenweger by Lynne Price

As a theological biography of Professor Walter J. Hollenweger, this book surveys his extensive interests, varied methods and wide-ranging reflection. But Price also incorporates an enquiry into the nature and function of western academic theology relating to to Christian practice today. Hollenweger's research into Pentecostalism, Ecumenism and Intercultural Theology is here brought together in a synthetic overview. Issues such as the unity and diversity of the Bible and its interpretations, the particular and universal dimensions of worldwide Chrsitianity, and relations between Christians and between Christians and 'the others' are all exploited in order to stimulate fresh thinking on the mission of the churches.

Theology Out of Place Reviews


"A scholarly yet practical engagement on Christian faith and life with the contemporary world." -Christian Week
well researched and clearly written Price presents key elements of Hollenweger's thought in a style that is accessible and generally introductory, ideal for those coming to this crucial strand of missiology for the first time Hollenweger's work still belongs to a largely unknown area of a minority discipline but this study should introduce more people to one of the most stimulating areas of theological study. Modern Believing, July 2003.
