One of the challenges we face with our emerging context is the need to think and reflect broadly and move away from the obsession of focusing narrowly on single topics. Not that single topics in focus are bad, it's just that we need to lift up our heads and see the connection between history, theology, philosophy, culture.
So I'm always on the look out for books that give and overview, and have pre-ordered this one. It looks very promising with an overview of many issues from some of the top writers and thinkers from around the world. Also as the title suggests, I think it explores an important issue of how we can help people to get a theogical education and formation without having to go to seminary full time.
