Good news from your poor neighbours: life-giving rivers from the World Church by Alan Sharp

For the first time in 850 years, the centre of gravity of the world church has moved from Europe to the Majority World, centred in Africa. What might God be saying by doing this? Are Western people able to learn from Black, Asian and Latin American women and men about God, the Bible and life? Sharp finds that the Majority World's 21st century experience of global inequality and injustice explains why many people believe in Bible doctrines of oppression and justice. Can the West grasp the implications for the global rich?


'Alan Sharp writes as a white man who has taken time to listen, learn and understand some of the marginalization that people from the Majority World face. This book, drawing on the Biblical perspective of justice and the work of African, Black, womanist and post-colonial theologians, articulates clearly that the Western church has a lot to learn from the insights of Christians from the Majority World. These insights, necessitated by people's cultural and socio-economic conditioning, bring a different perspective to mission, theology and how we do church. The book certainly critiques the notion that we are post-racial and might be an uncomfortable read for those who share such a view!'
- Rev Israel Olofinjana, Centre for Missionaries from the Majority World
