Abstract:

"Christian Histories, Christian Traditioning provides a profound historical, theological, and constructive reading of Christian plurality. Dale T. Irvin grapples with the many traditions within the Christian tradition to show how plurality bears witness to a core tradition - even as it subverts the claims of Western Christianity to be its sole normative expression. The voices of emerging churches - like those that resound through the centuries from long-eclipsed churches in Persia, Mesopotamia, India, Ethiopia, and China - together testify to Jesus as the Christ. But they do so in ways that show that non-Western traditions constitute an integral part of the mainstream, while showing the need for Euro-American tradition to give up its normative pretenses."--BOOK JACKET.
