NEGOTIATING THE CRISIS OF SUCCESS: CONTEXTUAL THEOLOGY TEN YEARS INTO DEMOCRACY

Anthony Balcomb

Abstract


Contextual theology has faced something of a crisis since the advent of democracy
and the new dispensation in South Africa. The roots of the crisis may be found in the
fact that much of the contextual theology of the past was based on the political
agenda of erstwhile resistance movements that have become dominant political
parties. This essay probes the nature of the crisis and looks to its solution in the
future. It does this by locating the crisis in the realignment of political groupings in
the past decade, examining its major theological weaknesses in the eighties and
early nineties, and revisiting the issue of methodology around some crucial
theological issues at stake in the new dispensation.
