“Our contemporary world has become polycentric, with no one center, not even the United States as the sole remaining superpower, able to control and dominate, and not for lack of trying, the politics, economics, and cultures of the other states. It goes without saying that this polycentricity has a deep impact on Christianity [and] especially on churches…. A transnational, transcultural, polycentric, and centrifugal Christianity has been rapidly emerging as a result.”
