Marginality: The Key to Multicultural Theology

Front Cover
Fortress Press, Jan 1, 1995 - Religion - 208 pages
0 Reviews
Marginality proposes a framework that justifies and undergirds development of contextual theologies without becoming itself dominating. Jung Young Lee aims to address the dilemmas of contextual theology, not by moving one or another group from the margin to the center, but by redefining marginality itself as central.
