Overview

The essays assembled in this volume, all of which were given at the 1988 meeting of the College Theology Society at Loyola-Marymount University in Los Angeles, reflect and verify a growing conviction within contemporary Christian theology: if theologians are going to do their job properly, they have to somehow get out of their own backyards. They cannot be church and they cannot carry on the task of drawing ever new treasures out of the old "deposit of faith" unless they do so together with othersó"others" meaning people who are genuinely different from themselves. In differing ways, each of the essays in this volume deals with the otherness of culture, or religion, or victimhood. Contents: Can Theology be Transcultural? Raimon Panikkar; The Cosmology of Religions, Thomas Berry; Theology in a Suffering World: Theology as Intellectus Amoris, Jon Sobrino; Liberation Theology and Marxism, Enrique Dussel; The American Catholic Church-A New Way of Being Catholic, Robert Kress; Christology from a Contemporary African Perspective, Caritas McCarthy; Examining Gender Issues in Interreligious Dialogue, Maura O'Neill; Jesus as Savior of the World, Gerald Finnegan. Co-published with the College Theology Society.
