Chalice Introduction to Disciples Theology

  • Edited by Peter Heltzel
Product Description
The Chalice Introduction to Disciples Theology is a contemporary and inclusive exploration of the beliefs of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) theology, while embracing ecumenism and a global outlook. It serves as a critical introduction to the sources, nature, contexts, and major doctrines of Disciples theology, serving pastors, theological students, and Christian leaders across different denominations.

Although the authors share a common Disciples theological tradition, they engage with the broader church and its global context. Their reflections are influenced by diverse cultural settings and theological perspectives. Authors write from non-North American cultural contexts, such as Paraguay, Puerto Rico, the Caribbean, and sub-Saharan Africa, while those in the European-American tradition contribute to a larger conversation within the worldwide church. Aiming to foster a comprehensive discussion of global theology, the book emphasizes cultural and gender diversity.

The current global situation necessitates a prophetic, intercultural theology. Multicultural ministry and theology often fall short in addressing the enduring effects of colonialism and white supremacy on communities of color. Intercultural theology recognizes cultural uniqueness and embraces the conflicts arising from historical and interpretive struggles within distinct cultural realities. By promoting intercultural conversation, marginalized voices can be recentered, fostering new possibilities for theological dialogue. This approach holds hope for collective participation in the gospel's pursuit of peace, love, and justice, encouraging us to sing new songs together.
