Method and Context as Problems for Contemporary Theology: Doing Theology in an Alien World

Front Cover
Edwin Mellen Press, 1991 - Religion - 236 pages
0 Reviews
A proposal for the need to concentrate on the basic and simple art of doing theology in the context of a world which needs a word that is distinct from its own - a world alienated from God and still yearning to overcome its primordial alienation. Theology must be able to convey the ultimate message which is without equal, to overcome being a minority voice in an overcrowded market. [TST 58*] $89.95 248pp. 1991
