Elizondo's mestizaje and Gutiérrez's preferential alternative for the terrible arose out of a theology of context, a theological strategy that takes heavily the contextual situations in their locale. through the use of the typical loci theologici of Scripture and culture along side context and their very own adventure, Elizondo and Gutiérrez illustrate via their theologies how each staff needs to embody their very own detailed theological reflection.
"Simon Kim has sincerely 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 aim 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 US and arguably probably the most influential theologians of the 20 th century, whereas Elizondo is the top-rated US Latino theologian, whose effect additionally stretches to all continents all over the world. Fewer readers will observe at the start look that Kim has produced the main entire comparative research of those major theologians so far. given that many theologians and students from comparable fields are likely to conflate the theologies of Latin americans and people folks Latinas and Latinos, this comparative research by myself makes Kim's publication a beneficial contribution to modern theological scholarship.
"Simon Kim brings out the price of the tactic Gutiérrez and Elizondo hired for doing theological mirrored image. He captures fantastically how his matters' existence studies 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."
