Christian Engagement in Social Change: The Role of Theological Education

Muthuraj Swamy (Editor) Wilson Paluri (Editor) Asish Thomas Koshy (Editor)

Christian Engagement in Social Change: The Role of Theological Education' is a collection of reflections from authors from a variety of Indian Christian backgrounds in a context where Christian participation in the public sphere is becoming a great concern. Challenging the perspectives, including those by Christians, which continue to harbor discourses that isolate `religion' from other aspects of life and that have the dangerous potential for leading to `religious' ghettoization, the book brings together resources from different theological fields and perspectives to strengthen the directions that have been already initiated by many Indian Christian thinkers but have still a long way to go in a society like India.
