In case you didn’t know. Ben Myers’ blog is probably the best theological blog on the web. One of the main reasons why is that many intelligent minds grapple with each other by commenting on Ben’s blog, one of the brighest being Kim Fabricius. In the comments section of a recent post, Kim pulls out a great quote from Vinoth Ramachandra in his work Subverting Global Myths: Theology and the Public Issues Shaping Our World (2008), one worth pondering:
Why are North American or British or German theologies [and philosophies?] never named as such, but Indian or Latin American or African theologies are? Western theologies are simply assumed to be universal, but non-Western theologies are ‘contextual.’ The insularity of most Western theological institutions is astonishing.
This seems pretty spot on to me. Agree/disagree?
