Constructing Local Theologies

Front Cover
Orbis Books, 2015 - Religion - 204 pages
In the thirty years since Constructing Local Theologies first appeared, it has been the basic handbook for anyone interested in understanding the theological implications of cultural pluralism. While the themes of inculturation and contextualisationhave been increasingly familiar, the insights of this groundbreaking work remain startlingly fresh and original. The proliferation of local theologies and the emergence of voices from the margins continue to challenge traditional assumptions that the theology of the dominant culture is universal and undetermined by context.
