Description

Seven leading Arabic evangelical theologians apply theological thinking to critical issues in the Arabic world in the twenty-first century, presenting how Christian minorities in a Muslim context interact with the Scriptures and with issues of politics, culture and gender.

Theology is not done in a vacuum. Our theology is affected by the culture in which we live, and our theology can have unexpected effects on the lives of Christians who live thousands of miles away. This point emerges clearly as we listen to seven Arabic evangelical theologians address issues that are of critical importance to Christians living as minorities in the Muslim world. North American readers may find that many of their assumptions are challenged as they see how respected Christian thinkers from a very different context address issues of biblical interpretation, national and international politics, culture and gender.
