Following the directives of Pope John XXIII and the second one Vatican Council, Elizondo and Gutiérrez current the Gospel message in appropriate phrases to their very own humans through attractive the area because the Church of the bad. encouraged by means of this second in Church heritage, whereas while spotting the plight in their humans of their terrible and marginal life, Elizondo and Gutiérrez stumbled on a brand new means of doing theology by means of asking a particular set of questions in line 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 negative in Latin the United States, either theologians have exposed a hermeneutical lens in rereading Scripture and deepening our realizing of ecclesial tradition.

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."
