Summary: This book argues that when one speaks of “Christianity” this must be understood in global terms in all of its diversity of expression and not simply in the forms we Westerners are most accustomed to.
In contrast to the growing list of “contextual” Asian theologies out of academic “elitist” settings, Chan explores the Asian theologies implicit in the popular church movements and writers in the Asian context, and particularly the significance of Pentecostal theology.
In Miriam Adeney’s first chapter, on the spread of global Christianity, she observes: “… the future global church may not be Western-led, and that’s OK. Let the mantle pass. We in the West can learn to follow, can’t we?” (40)

Transcript (with minor edits) of a talk given at the IFES World Assembly in Oaxtepec, Mexico on July 22, 2015. The topic was “The University Today” and the talk addresses four “change” forces in the university that present both challenges and opportunities for mission in the university. Each section includes the reflection questions shared during the talk. Many asked for this transcript so that they could get these questions and further discuss the implications of these “change” forces.
