9780227680124: Contextual Theology: The Drama of Our Times
Review:

"...There is here a useful, updated reminder of what contextual theology is at its best..." Paul Ballard, Theological book review, Vol. 24, No 2, 2012. 'This book is a good resource for theologians, students of theology, church leaders and members who desire to render the theological enterprise a contextual one.' Robert Afayori, The Expository Times, Volume 125, No.2, November 2013-10-17

From the Publisher:

Matheny examines the changes in our understanding of the theological processes within the Christian church due to the reality of the 'new Christianity' and the introduction of contextual theology. Matheny illustrates that the centre of Christianity is now found in the Global South, an observation that indicates the need for a new contextual approach, moving away from the detrimental effects of the deeply entrenched models of Western theological tradition. Church leaders and theology teachers need to contextualize faith within their own cultures and the new contexts of modern medicine, agriculture, education, social hierarchies, and socio-cultural dynamics. The author succinctly uses new understandings of local and ecumenical theology to strategize the initiation of theological discourse and reflection for all Christians. The author demonstrates the potential of contextual theology to connect the work of people in their local parishes with the purposes of God for all creation. Scholars, parishioners, and church leaders can feel encouraged about Christian Mission and ministry by this meaningful and passionate response to a changing world. Paul Matheny is Professor of Christian Theology and Ethics at Philippine Christian University and Union Theological Seminary, Philippines. 'This is a superbly written book that clearly outlines the vital importance of engaging in contextual theology for our time. Matheny reviews the historical background to contextual theology as well as various approaches. He explains how it works in practice, why contextual theology is good theology and why a healthy contextual theology will shape the future of theology by reviving biblical images and perspectives found in world Christianity. It is an accessible read and will be a very helpful resource for students, practitioners, and parishioners'. Cathy Ross, Lecturer in Pastoral Studies (Mission), Regent's Park College, University of Oxford
