Scholars from the United States, Latin America, and Oceania reflect in this volume on the importance of contextual theology for the twenty-first century. Contextual theology offers fresh voices from every culture, and not just from the West. It calls for new ways of doing theology that embrace cultural values, but at the same time challenges them to the core. And it opens up new and fresh topics out of which and about which people can theologise. If the church is to be faithful to its mission, it needs to provide a feast at which all can be nourished.

Stephen Bevans is Louis J. Luzbetak, SVD, Professor of Mission and Culture at Catholic Theological Union, Chicago, USA. He is the author of Models of Contextual Theology (2002) and An Introduction to Theology in Global Perspective (2009).Review:
The tension between some of the essays results in a dialogue which is engaging and an important read for anyone interested in mission, contextual theology or theological education (Jenny Anne Wright, University of Edinburgh Theological Book Review, Vol. 25, No.1, 2013)
...refreshing, challenging, critical, and hope-filled. Refreshing because elements of ‘traditional theology’ are still relevant; challenging because it highlights new situations for contextual theology in economically globalised existences, critical because it ask relevant questions about once-accepted and once-revered dominant theologies, worldviews and epistemologies; hope-filled because it discusses viable options and directions for the future.” (Marcus Campbell Anthropology Forum, Vol 24, Issue 1, 86-114, (2014))
This slim volume is a minor gem in both its critique and its vision for the future. It should make the reading list of any course in contextual and global theology. (John Mansford Prior Mission Studies, vol 31, 2014)
