“Why do theological students in the West continue to spend countless hours learning about a few well-known, now deceased German theologians whose global devotees are actually quite small, and yet completely ignore over one billion living, breathing Muslims who represent on of the most formidable challenges to the Christian gospel today?”
from Timothy C. Tennent, Theology in the Context of World Christianity: How the Global Church Is Influencing the Way We Think about and Discuss Theology (Zondervan, 2007).

    I take the point, but I think it might be exaggerated. Do theological students really spend that much time reading dead old Germans? I don’t think so. I suspect it’s more live white Americans who are read by theological students. People like… Timothy Tennent! Mostly kidding :0)
