Though the makeup of the Church worldwide has undeniably shifted south and east over the past few decades, very few theological resources have taken account of these changes. Jesus without Borders - the first volume in the emerging Majority World Theology series - begins to remedy that lack, bringing together select theologians and biblical scholars from various parts of the world to discuss the significance of Jesus in their respective contexts. Offering an excellent glimpse of contemporary global, evangelical dialogue on the person and work of Jesus, this volume epitomises the best Christian thinking from the Majority World in relation to Western Christian tradition and Scripture. The contributors engage throughout with historic Christian confessions - especially the Creed of Chalcedon - and unpack their continuing relevance for Christian teaching about Jesus today.

“Provides an important invitation. . . . Each chapter's response to Jesus' question Who do you say I am?' offers a slightly different perspective on how Christians around the world answer that question. "Jesus without Borders" helps us take seriously the global nature of Christian faith and practice.”
(Juan Francisco Martinez, Fuller Theological Seminary)
