The theological reflections of Virgilio Elizondo and Gustavo Gutiérrez are examples of the ecclesial fruitfulness of the second one 1/2 the 20 th 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 via enticing the realm because the Church of the terrible. encouraged through this second in Church historical past, whereas while spotting the plight in their humans of their terrible and marginal lifestyles, Elizondo and Gutiérrez stumbled on a brand new means of doing theology through asking a particular set of questions in keeping with their neighborhood context. by means of investigating the place God is found in the border crossers of the southwestern usa and the poorest of the bad in Latin the United States, 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 terrible arose out of a theology of context, a theological process that takes heavily the contextual conditions in their locale. by using the typical loci theologici of Scripture and culture along side context and their very own event, Elizondo and Gutiérrez illustrate via their theologies how each team needs to include their very own certain theological reflection.

"Simon Kim has in actual fact delineated his aim of studying 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 target via a cautious exposition of the contexts, contents, intersections, and divergences in their respective theologies. . . . Gutiérrez is the founding determine of liberation theology in Latin the USA and arguably probably the most influential theologians of the 20 th century, whereas Elizondo is the ultimate US Latino theologian, whose impression additionally stretches to all continents around the world. Fewer readers will notice in the beginning look that Kim has produced the main complete comparative research of those prime theologians to this point. due to the fact that many theologians and students from similar fields are inclined to conflate the theologies of Latin american citizens and people people Latinas and Latinos, this comparative research on my own makes Kim's e-book a beneficial contribution to modern theological scholarship.

"Simon Kim brings out the worth of the tactic Gutiérrez and Elizondo hired for doing theological mirrored image. He captures superbly how his matters' lifestyles reviews and pastoral management have deeply formed their theological insights and . . . how these insights have formed their pastoral imaginative and prescient and that of various others whom they've got inspired."
