A Spacious Heart: Essays on Identity and Belonging
This book explores key aspects of the problem of diverse group identities, offering preliminary exegetical and theological perspectives on the encounter with "others." The "politics of difference, " the resurgence of ethnic and cultural conflicts in the non-Western world, and the clash between modern technological and traditional cultures place new challenges before Christian theology. "Our book, " the authors explain, "is a call to open ourselves to the Spirit of God, the Spirit of mercy, justice, and truth, and help heal our world by embracing others as we remain true to ourselves."
