Asian American Theology Colloquium at PTS 2017

Colloquium at Princeton Theological Seminary, April 5, 2017

“Asian American Theology: Promise and Challenge”

Princeton Theological Seminary is pleased to host a colloquium on Asian American theology. The colloquium places Asian American theologians and ministers in dialogue for the sake of identifying major issues facing Asian American Christianity. The colloquium will also give testimony to the unique gifts and vision of the Asian American church. Round table discussions will further the conversation among presenters as well as those in attendance. Topics that will be addressed include race, issues of moral authority (especially along intergenerational and gender lines), and civic engagement. The colloquium seeks to bring resources from the Christian theological tradition and biblical narratives of salvation to bear on these challenges facing Asian American Christianity.

The colloquium will equip and empower current Princeton Theological Seminary students and alumni by showcasing fresh perspectives within the field of Asian American theology. The colloquium will also engage local clergy and lay Christians who serve in the Asian American ecclesial context and are involved with Asian American Christians. Finally, we believe that bringing together rigorous theological reflection and practical ministry experience into mutual dialogue will make an important contribution to the flourishing of Asian American Christianity.
