In this book the author shows how this trend in scholarship has led to an expanded subject matter, alternative ways of knowing, and richer terms for analysis in doing Christian theology. Tracing more than two decades of her own search for a more inclusive discipline, Bonnie J Miller-McLemore shows how pastoral and practical theology has developed during this time.

Genesis and Christian Theology Nathan MacDonald, Mark W Elliot and Grant Macaskill Sixteen scholars consider Genesis — one of the richest resources for Jewish and Christian theological reflection — in dialogue with historical and contemporary theological reflection.

Edmondo F Lupieri From the conquistadores in Central and South America to the Jesuits in China, the author traces the consequences of European war and conquest for global cultural identities from the age of exploration to the present.
