    by David G. Firth
    Series Editor D. A. Carson

    The Old Testament, particularly the Former Prophets, has been regarded as having a negative attitude towards foreigners.

    New expressions of church, including so-called insider movements, are proliferating among non-Christian religious communities worldwide.

    by Henning Wrogemann

    Christianity is not only a global but also an intercultural phenomenon. In this third volume of his three-volume Intercultural Theology, Henning Wrogemann proposes that we need to go beyond currently trending theologies of mission to formulate both a theory of interreligious relations and a related but methodologically independent theology of interreligious relations.
