Out of Every Tribe and Nation demonstrates how ethnic minority perspectives can enrich the church's understanding of a variety of its traditional doctrines: creation, salvation, the Word, and the church in its relation to the world. In each case, Gonzalez draws from several ethnic minority perspectives to demonstrate that the church's traditional understanding of these doctrines, because it has been framed by one dominant group, has impoverished and at times distorted the gospel. In listening to these perspectives, the church can recapture the richness of the divine-human encounter in Christ, and reclaim its standing as the whole people of God. By combining the theological perspectives of different ethnic minority theologians on the nature of the gospel and the church and by avoiding an anthology approach, the book offers a single, coherent theological discourse drawn from a variety of different yet complementary perspectives.
