This volume of the Mediator reproduces papers presented at the Wesley Theological Conference held at Asia-Pacific Nazarene Theological Seminary, November 8-10, 2012. The conference was organized by a committee led by Dr. Dick Eugenio, professor of theology at APNTS. The majority of scholars presenting at this conference were Asians, and this represents a significant step in the contextualization of Wesleyan theology for Asia. Other attempts in this area have been made, and these must continue. The time has long past for theology to beproduced by Asians for Asia. Theological seminaries in Asia are poised to contribute to this ongoing effort.The papers from the conference are reproduced here largely as they were presented at the conference. Each main paper is followed by one or two responses. The conference was an exciting and intellectually stimulating time. It is the seminary's hope that the fruitful discussions generated will continue in the future, and ultimately contribute to the raising up of a vibrant group of Wesleyan theologians for Asia.The final paper in this volume is from Linda Bondy, instructor of English at APNTS. This paper was presented at the Christians in English Language Teaching Conference, held in Dallas, Texas, USA, March 20, 2013. It describes a way to improvescores English proficiency scores for Asian students. English is a difficult language to many people, and theological English is harder still. It is hoped that the points raised in this paper will contribute to increasing the English proficiency of students in a minimum amount of time.
