| || ||Title: A PROLEGOMENA FOR THE THAI CONTEXT: A Starting Point for Thai Theology (Article)
Author: Taylor, Steve
Description: The article explores the statement why "Thai are not interested in systematic theology’. The reason is most theology taught in Thailand is Western in origin. The problem is that the thought processes and epistemology of the Thai have generally not developed along Western lines. They hold different presuppositions and world view to that of the West. Furthermore, ‘local theologies which are directly applicable to the Thai mind and culture have not yet emerged’. The gospel of Jesus Christ can not yet be said to have become rooted in the Thai mind. This article discusses the necessity for develop of a Thai systematic theology.
