Resumen

HWANG, Jae-Buhm. Theological poverty of churches in the developing world: Its causes and effects. Herv. teol. stud. [online]. 2011, vol.67, n.3, pp. 397-403. ISSN 2072-8050.

By and large, the non Protestant churches from the developing world rarely have a creative theology that is unique to their own cultures and religiosity. It was my hypothesis that the theological barrenness of churches from the developing world is partly as a result of the anti-intellectualist legacy of the past missions from the developed world. This legacy was fostered by the strong paternalism of these past missions on the one hand and on the other, by their revivalist conversionism. The anti-intellectual legacy has brought two notable results to the missionised churches from the developing world: their profound dependency on theologies from the developed world and their resulting theological poverty, both interdependent elements.
