Product Description

In Schreiter's view, a deep irony, perhaps even a paradox, is concealed within the riddle of globalization. Such forces as feminist, liberation, ecological, and global theological movements find their counterparts in anti-globalism, ethnification, and primitivism. Liberation thought in a post-Soviet world seeks to be more realistic about economics but finds "reformist gradualism" a bitter pill to swallow. Intercultural theologies find analogous difficultieswhen they attend to "integrated" as opposed to "globalized" concepts of culture. The seeming polar opposition of [bad] "syncretism" and [good] "synthesis" in the context of changing religious indentities end up much less amenable to simple value judgments than they once appeared to be. Orbis Books, 140 pages. Paperback.

Publisher's Description

Following his widely acclaimed "Constructing Local Theologies", Robert J. Schreiter's "The New Catholicity" takes a close look at the issues that are reshaping theology today. Schreiter proposes that an expanded concept of catholicity can meet the challenge of forming a theology that can cohere between the opposites of "global" and "local".
