The writings in the book "Towards an Integral Theology" have addressed a wide range of relevant biblical, theological, historical, missiological, religious, and ministerial issues in relation to integral theology in the postmodern context of India. These reforming, interdisciplinary and integrating reflections will provide alternatives for the churches to go beyond the divisive factors and to have a spirit of integration in its mission. Bishop Ezra Sargunam in this regard has placed himself as a bridge builder between the theoreticians and the practitioners, the liberals and the conservatives, the ecumenicals and the evangelicals, and the secular and the sacred. Therefore this book explores a movement towards an integral theology for the Church that needs to be explored, expounded and experienced further.
