Contextual theology or contextualizing theology refers to theology which has responded to the dynamics of a particular context

Contextual theology or contextualizing theology refers to theology which has responded to the dynamics of a particular context. The term contextualizing theology was used in missiology by Shoki Coe when he argued that the Venn-Anderson three-self principles were inadequate in addressing the sociopolitical context of his native Taiwan. Coe would popularize this notion through the Theological Education Fund of the World Council of Churches.

Controversies in Political Theology addresses the question of whether Christians should be struggling towards development or liberation. It explores the theologies of development and liberation, from their beginnings in the 1960s through their changes to the central arguments today. The contrasts are examined in the practice of faith-based aid agencies. The understanding of how to practice justice differs widely for development theology and liberation theology. Whilst the theology of development remain focused on the economic realm, on trade and consumption, the theology of liberation expands the discussion beyond the economic realm to deal with politics, race, gender and culture more generally. These different concepts of justice lead to very different actions in communities around the world. This book provides students with access to an in-depth view of these practices in a clear and concise context. The book looks not only at the theologies themselves but also how they came to emerge, and how they stand in contrast across the globe today.
