EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Evangelical theology strives to be evangelical, conservative, and contemporary. In a world in which everyone is "Christian," evangelical theology provides a balanced position between fundamentalism and liberalism. While theological debates within the family will occur, to be evangelical is a breath of fresh air for many. However, we do not live in such a world. We do find ourselves living in a secular, global society. It is secular because no religious organization dictates how we live our lives. It is global for at least two reasons. First, our technology brings us immediately in contact with those faraway places. Second, and of more importance, we can simply step outside our front doors and encounter our neighborhoods that reflect a global pluralism. This raises the question, how shall we then live? The intent of An Evangelical Theology of Religions is to suggest a direction for evangelicals to think about the secular, global society in which they live in a way that is not only conservative but also evangelical and contemporary. The final essay strives to address the evangelical aspect of our tradition that places an emphasis on the Great Commission and the law of love.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

This book is designed as a primary or supplementary textbook in courses on the sociology of religion courses offered at major 4 year colleges and universities. Due to the high level of interest in religion and religious conflict, and an increased interest in religion on a global scale, this book will also be adopted in introductory sociology, social movements, and social problems courses. Religious conflict, linked with ethnic and cultural differences are part of the everyday discussion in classrooms and on campuses around the world. This book directly responds to issues of social problems and issues prevalent in the world today in a style that is both authoritative and attention-getting. A current user of Gods in The Global Village said, "the bottom line is this is a terrific book, the best I’ve found for this course in twenty years of teaching. It reflects solid scholarship, but is written in an accessible style, and addresses what I believe are the most important issues in our world today. It offers what I want my students to learn! I look forward to the revised edition, which I will certainly use in my class."
