Dr. Easten Law - Interdisciplinary Research in World Christianity
"In this episode we chat with Easten Law, OMSC, about the field of World Christianity, the joys and challenges of interdisciplinary research, and whether or not World Christianity is the answer to all of theology's problems (listen to find out Easten's tactful answer!)"
Allan Varghese Mellootu - Pentecostalism in South India
In this episode, we (Nuam and Thiu) talk with Allan Varghese on themes around his two published papers on Syrian and Dalit Pentecostalism in Kerala, South India. We get to hear a brief account of Christianity in Kerala (a tradition that stretches all the way back to Thomas, the disciple of Jesus), social stratifications that fractured Syrian Christianity along different castes, Allan's work on Dalit Pentecostalism in amplifying their marginalised narratives in Indian Christian history... and brief reflections on global Pentecostalism and the recent events at Asbury.
Allan is a PhD student researching on Pentecostalism in the South India. He is based at the Asbury Theological Seminary, USA. Find him on Twitter.
Dr. Tore Johnsen - Sámi Nature-Centered Christianity in the European Arctic
"The book unpacks the theological significance of North Sámi indigenous Christianity, demonstrating how the tension between Sámi nature-centered Christianity and official Norwegian Lutheranism has broad theological relevance."
