Contesting Post-Racialism

This chapter locates this larger book project within the broader framework of Contextual Theology. It outlines the basic features and methodological points of departure in contextual theology, analyzing the seminal work of the Euro-American, Catholic theologian Stephen Bevans. It critiques Bevans’ typology driven, systematic approach to Contextual Theology, arguing that this method fails to appreciate the highly contested and politicized nature of the subject. The chapter concludes by highlighting the socio-political intent of black churches and Christianity across the world, demonstrating how this text seeks to problematize and articulate the dialectical nature of this growing phenomenon.

Keywords:   Contextual Theology, Stephen Bevans, Black Theology, Theologies of liberation, race
