The theological reflections of Virgilio Elizondo and Gustavo Gutiérrez are examples of the ecclesial fruitfulness of the second one half 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 suitable phrases to their very own humans through enticing the area because the Church of the terrible. encouraged through this second in Church historical past, whereas whilst 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 selected 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 terrible in Latin the United States, either theologians have exposed a hermeneutical lens in rereading Scripture and deepening our knowing of ecclesial tradition.

Elizondo's mestizaje and Gutiérrez's preferential alternative for the bad arose out of a theology of context, a theological technique that takes heavily the contextual conditions in their locale. by using the typical loci theologici of Scripture and culture at the side of context and their very own adventure, Elizondo and Gutiérrez illustrate via their theologies how each staff needs to embody their very own distinct theological reflection.

"Simon Kim has essentially delineated his target of reading 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 objective 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 United States and arguably the most influential theologians of the 20th century, whereas Elizondo is the best US Latino theologian, whose impression additionally stretches to all continents world wide. Fewer readers will word firstly look that Kim has produced the main complete comparative research of those best theologians up to now. due to the fact that many theologians and students from comparable fields are likely to conflate the theologies of Latin americans and people people Latinas and Latinos, this comparative research by myself makes Kim's booklet a priceless contribution to modern theological scholarship.

"Simon Kim brings out the price of the strategy Gutiérrez and Elizondo hired for doing theological mirrored image. He captures fantastically how his topics' 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 diverse others whom they've got inspired."
