Format: Paperback
Drawing from a diverse group of distinguished experts in their fields of study, the Spencers offer a theme summarized in the well selected title, The Global God. God is presented as the One who has revealed Himself to all cultures, but is not limited to one culture's understanding of Him. Rather, by revealing Himself, He is calling people beyond their culture and toward the narrow road which leads to Christ. In the words of the Spencers, it is "Inclusive to all people...exclusive to one Supreme God."
Each author presents an attribute of God from the perspective of his/her own culture, making positive and negative judgments based on the standard of an Evangelical approach to Scripture. The contributors selected originate from the cultures that they represent and in addition to their "real world" experiences hold relevant academic credentials. As approaches and styles vary, sources used in depicting cultures also varied. For example, William Spencer in his article draws from history, whereas Tae-Ju Moon appeals to many statistics in his approach. In their approach to the study of Scripture all of them use a similar method including concept studies and careful consideration is given to context.
Introducing the theme, the Spencers explain that God has revealed Himself to all people through both natural and special revelation and yet he is calling them to a new way of life beyond their cultural values. Appropriately, the first article, by Aida Spencer, presents the Biblical view of God noting His attributes as they are revealed in Scripture. Following are ten articles. For the sake of space, four examples are offered here. William Spencer by observing history shows America's Darwinian view of power which is distinctly different from God's power; driven by love.

Format: Paperback
I think this book is written for academics and not for the general reader, who may want to gain a general understanding of how God may have revealed himself in other cultures. I found what I read quite informative, but have to confess I gave up, because the amount of detail was overwhelming. Having said that I'm sure it will be of benefit to some people. There was no investigation of India or Asia other than China and Korea. Also no investigation of indigenous cultures in Australia or New Zealand or the Pacific.
