KONTEKSTUELE TEOLOGIE IN LATYNS-AMERIKA – ‘N BREË ORIËNTERING

H C Van Zyl

Abstract


CONTEXTUAL THEOLOGY IN LATIN-AMERICA - A BROAD ORIENTATION. 

The article does not pretend to be a specialist review of liberation theology (LT) in Latin America, but rather to introduce the novice in this field to the most salient points of its manifestation in this region. The following aspects are treated: the social-political development in Latin-America, without which a correct perception of the origins of LT cannot be formed; the position and involvement of the church in the lives of the people in the past and present; a characterization, summary of the important points of critique, and evaluation of one important aspect of LT, viz its inclination towards being revelation and not mere theology. Apart from a select bibliography for the interested reader, divided in primary and secondary sources, a list of the most prominent LT theologians is provided.
