    One thought on “Globalization and Theology (Horizons In Theology)”

    1. This is a truly excellent book. It's great not because it says something new but because it says what it's saying in the clearest and most succinct and powerful way it can. The only reason why I'm not giving it 5 starts is because I think it would have been helpful to spend more time thinking about possible constructive ways forward (and at 63pp, the book certainly had room for a fuller discussion!). But overall, I highly recommend this book.
