An Introduction to Theology in Global Perspective

First, this is a book about doing theology, emphasizing not so much content but theology as an activity, a process. Second, this is a book about doing Catholic theology, that is to say anchored in Scripture but also as interpreted by ecclesial Tradition and Magisterium, theology rooted in the experience that the divine is to be found in a sacramental world and community.

And a fourth key insight, the contextual nature of theology, as it makes sense of life in a global world shot through with cultural and religious plurality.
