Dictionary of Third World Theologies

Virginia Fabella and R.S. Sugirtharajah, eds.
Orbis, 2000


This reference work makes available in one volume the breadth and richness of the theological contributions of the peoples of Africa, Asia, the Caribbean, Latin America, the Pacific, and the minority and indigenous peoples of the world. Entries show how theology from the non-Western world has changed the language and contours of contemporary theology.

The editors commissioned theologians from the Third World to write more than 150 entries on themes from Christian theology and religious studies, including spiritualities, cultural and social issues, biblical interpretation, and theological categories. The entries are inclusive of geographical, cultural, and denominational/confessional variations and the contributors include members of the Roman Catholic, Protestant, Orthodox, and Mar Thoma (India) churches.

Contributors include Gustavo Gutierrez, Chung Hyun Kyung, Mercy Amba Oduyoye, Masao Takenaka, Elsa Tamez, Fernando Segovia, Virgilio Elizondo, Laurenti Magesa, Roberto Goizueta, Aloysius Pieris, Leonardo Boff, Ivone Gebara, Maria Pilar Aquino, Clodovis Boff, Ada Maria Isasi-Diaz, Tissa Balasuriya, Eleazar Fernandez and James H. Cone, among many others.
