Item Description...
Presents the construction of "local theologies" as an enterprise that's not just for specialists. This exciting and practical book promises to become a standard in courses on theological method and foundations of ministry.Clemens Sedmak is professor of philosophy at the University of Salzburg.

Publishers Description
Clemens Sedmak's Doing Local Theology, presents the construction of "local theologies" as an enterprise that is not just for Latin Americans, Asians, or Africans. Nor just for theologians. Instead, it is the art of thinking theologically about any local church and implementing a process that grounds people intentionally and aesthetically in the deepest Christian dimensions of their daily lives. This book is beautifully written and will become a standard in courses on method in theology, foundations of ministry, and adult discussion groups. Theologizing, in Sedmak's terms, is reflection on people's everyday world, on everyday occurrences, and on local realities. Most of all, he shows how the everyday is where people encounter God in their relationships with one another, their larger communities, and the very physical environment we live in. If Robert Schreiter's monumental Constructing Local Theologies provides theoretical underpinning on the nature of local theologies, Clemens Sedmak shows that it is an art in which people learn to understand themselves and find full freedom as God's daughters and sons.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Significant work.  Nov 22, 2009
This is a significant work highlighting the development of 'local theology'. My impatience with it is that it is written deductively, with theorems presented. Why is it, I wonder, that an essentially inductive approach to theology must be turned into a deductive experience for the reader? A useful book for graduate students and libraries; undergraduates and M.Div.s could give it a pass.
