Meeting Beyond These Shores

Meeting Beyond These Shores

Black Pentecostalism, Black Theology, and the Global Context

(p.233) 13 Meeting Beyond These Shores

Dale T. Irvin

NYU Press

This chapter examines the intersection between black Pentecostal theology and black liberation theology within a global context. It laments the lack of a fuller dialogue between black theology and Afro-Pentecostalism, suggesting that the discourse between the two disciplines is still in its infancy because the potential benefit of such dialogue often has been overlooked. It argues that both black Pentecostalism and black liberation theology have something specific to offer, not only to each other but also to the global Christian community. The chapter outlines several ways that black Pentecostal theology and black theology can serve to mutually critique and correct each other, while highlighting the specific contributions each makes to contexts that are “beyond the shores” of Western theology. It insists that such a discourse need not be physically located in spaces outside North America, and in fact can be carried out in geographical terrains within the West.
