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 appropriate phrases to their very own humans through enticing the realm because the Church of the negative. encouraged by way of this second in Church heritage, whereas even as spotting the plight in their humans of their bad and marginal life, Elizondo and Gutiérrez came across a brand new manner of doing theology by way of asking a particular set of questions in response to their neighborhood context. through investigating the place God is found in the border crossers of the southwestern usa and the poorest of the bad in Latin the USA, either theologians have exposed a hermeneutical lens in rereading Scripture and deepening our knowing of ecclesial tradition.

Elizondo's mestizaje and Gutiérrez's preferential choice for the negative arose out of a theology of context, a theological procedure 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 event, Elizondo and Gutiérrez illustrate via their theologies how each staff needs to include their very own specified theological reflection.

"Simon Kim has truly delineated his aim of interpreting 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 target 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 efficient US Latino theologian, whose impression additionally stretches to all continents all over the world. Fewer readers will be aware at the start look that Kim has produced the main accomplished comparative research of those top theologians up to now. considering many theologians and students from similar fields are inclined to conflate the theologies of Latin american citizens and people folks Latinas and Latinos, this comparative research on my own makes Kim's e-book a helpful contribution to modern theological scholarship.

"Simon Kim brings out the worth of the tactic 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 various others whom they've got inspired."
