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 by means of enticing the area because the Church of the bad. encouraged by means of this second in Church historical past, whereas even as spotting the plight in their humans of their terrible and marginal lifestyles, Elizondo and Gutiérrez came across a brand new method of doing theology through asking a selected set of questions according to 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 figuring out of ecclesial tradition.

Elizondo's mestizaje and Gutiérrez's preferential choice for the bad arose out of a theology of context, a theological strategy that takes heavily the contextual conditions in their locale. through the use of the typical loci theologici of Scripture and culture together with context and their very own adventure, Elizondo and Gutiérrez illustrate via their theologies how each staff needs to embody their very own certain theological reflection.

"Simon Kim has essentially delineated his target 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 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 US and arguably probably the most influential theologians of the 20th century, whereas Elizondo is the most effective US Latino theologian, whose effect additionally stretches to all continents around the world. Fewer readers will observe at the beginning look that Kim has produced the main accomplished comparative research of those best theologians up to now. because many theologians and students from similar fields are likely to conflate the theologies of Latin american citizens and people people Latinas and Latinos, this comparative research on my own makes Kim's booklet a necessary 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 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 diverse others whom they've got inspired."
