Abstract:

"Globalization is a catchword of our time, referring to the interdependence that affects us all. But we often meet globalization with extreme ambivalence, recognizing that it has both positive and negative consequences for economics, politics, and culture. Joerg Rieger makes the point that even theology itself can be a manifestation of globalization. At its worst, theology can reflect Western intellectual imperialism, and at its best, theology can encourage a compelling vision of diversity within unity. The author articulates a theology of globalization as a diverse phenomenon that respects different ways of seeing and knowing, thus encouraging harmony rather than homogeny." ""Rieger's Globalization and Theology is an important contribution to contemporary theology. In this succinct volume, he provides a careful and sophisticated diachronic analysis of hard and soft power in relation to globalization and theology. His call for self-critical theological reflection, modeled throughout, challenges us to develop alternative models to globalization from above."--Elaine A. Robinson, Academic Dean and Associate Professor of United Methodist Studies and Christian Theology, Saint Paul School of Theology at Oklahoma City University" ""Joerg Rieger has provided a fresh and fascinating prospective on the relationship of globalization and theology. Globalization has long been understood as a domesticating influence, which blunts the voice of local particularities. However, in Globalization and Theology, Rieger insightfully demonstrates the vitality of the counterforces which globalization also unleashes which can empower distinctive new voices in theology. The complex web of connectedness, which globalization unleashes, is shown by Rieger to be a force and counterforce as old as Christianity itself."-Timothy C. Tennent, President and Professor of World Christianity at Asbury Theological Seminary in Wilmore, Kentucky"--Jacket.
