About the Author

Simon Chan (PhD, Cambridge) is Earnest Lau Professor of Systematic Theology at Trinity Theological College in Singapore. He is the author of Man and Sin, Pentecostal Theology and the Christian Spiritual Tradition, Spiritual Theology and Liturgical Theology. He is also the associate editor of the Global Dictionary of Theology.


"We certainly stand in Chan's debt both for his reasoned critiques of Asian theologies, and for forcing a rethink about grassroots Asian Christianity so it can assume a place in that global Christian family, and both enrich and be enriched by it. Hopefully, too, this book can serve as a catalyst for reflective theologians from other under-recognized cultures, so that Christians of every sort can grow together as the Spirit leads us into all truth."--Henry Rowold, Concordia Journal, Winter 2015
"It is a pleasure to read Chan's account of the thought world of ordinary believers and their communities. Just how are concepts like the Trinity and the work of the Holy Spirit presented in Asian contexts? Chan does an admirable job of addressing Catholic and Orthodox traditions, as well as Protestant and Pentecostal."--Philip Jenkins, The Christian Century, October 15, 2014
"This welcome addition to the Asian theological conversation presses readers to consider alternate voices that may constitute the majority of those that the term 'Asian theology' actually describes. Anyone who deals with global theology in general or Asian theology in particular must read this book.--Chris Flanders, Missiology, July 2015
