The theological reflections of Virgilio Elizondo and Gustavo Gutiérrez are examples of the ecclesial fruitfulness of the second one 1/2 the 20th century. Following the directives of Pope John XXIII and the second one Vatican Council, Elizondo and Gutiérrez current the Gospel message in proper phrases to their very own humans by way of attractive the area because the Church of the terrible. encouraged via this second in Church heritage, whereas even as spotting the plight in their humans of their bad and marginal lifestyles, Elizondo and Gutiérrez stumbled on a brand new approach of doing theology through asking a selected set of questions according to their neighborhood context. via investigating the place God is found in the border crossers of the southwestern usa and the poorest of the terrible in Latin the USA, either theologians have exposed a hermeneutical lens in rereading Scripture and deepening our figuring out of ecclesial tradition.

Elizondo's mestizaje and Gutiérrez's preferential alternative for the bad arose out of a theology of context, a theological technique that takes heavily the contextual conditions in their locale. by using the typical loci theologici of Scripture and culture along with context and their very own event, Elizondo and Gutiérrez illustrate via their theologies how each crew needs to include their very own distinct theological reflection.

"Simon Kim has in actual fact delineated his objective of interpreting the significance of doing theology in context via a comparative research of the works of Gustavo Gutiérrez and Virgilio Elizondo. Then he masterfully achieves that aim via a cautious exposition of the contexts, contents, intersections, and divergences in their respective theologies. . . .

Fewer readers will observe first and foremost look that Kim has produced the main complete comparative research of those top theologians so far. given that many theologians and students from similar fields are likely to conflate the theologies of Latin americans and people folks Latinas and Latinos, this comparative research by myself makes Kim's ebook a precious contribution to modern theological scholarship.

He captures fantastically how his matters' lifestyles reports and pastoral management have deeply formed their theological insights and . . . how these insights have formed their pastoral imaginative and prescient and that of diverse others whom they've got inspired."
