Description:

Translated from the Dutch edition, The Non-Western Jesus maintains that the heart of contemporary Christianity lies in the Southern hemisphere. Almost all of the Christians there, with the exception of South America, are a minority. In Asia, they live amongst the Islamic, Hindu, Buddhist, Shamanist or Taoist majorities. More and more this situation is having an impact on Christian theology. The same is happening in the relationship between the African Christians and the traditional African religions. In this way, a non-Western theology is developed with completely unique images and concepts.
