The Second Invasion

Main Article Content

Wann Fanwar


This paper is a study concerning the impact of Western theology upon Asian Christianity. It questions the long-term impact and the contemporary viability of this enterprise. In the face of seemingly insurmountable odds, we must wonder whether the theology, and by extension, the missiological task of the Church, based upon Western paradigms, is still feasible in Asia. Perhaps, the time has come for the Church in Asia to consider what it means to be both Asian and Christian and to seek ways of making this dual identity a living reality.
