The Centrality of Contextual Theology for Christian Existence Today

Research output: Book chapter/Published conference paperChapter


This book chapter deals with the central issue of theology in context for the presence of Christianity in the world today. It examines the specific pre-literary religious belief system of the North Moluccan Islanders of Indonesia, and then looks at the interaction of that faith system with Islam and Christianity, the majority faith system of parts of the contemporary population of the area. From this analysis it draws evaluative conclusions as to the central nature of contextual theology in world Christianity.
