"Simon Kim has essentially delineated his aim of analyzing the significance of doing theology in context via a comparative research of the works of Gustavo Gutiérrez and Virgilio Elizondo. Then he masterfully achieves that aim via a cautious exposition of the contexts, contents, intersections, and divergences in their respective theologies. . . . Gutiérrez is the founding determine of liberation theology in Latin the United States and arguably the most influential theologians of the 20th century, whereas Elizondo is the ideal US Latino theologian, whose effect additionally stretches to all continents all over the world. Fewer readers will notice before everything look that Kim has produced the main entire comparative research of those top theologians thus far. because many theologians and students from similar fields are likely to conflate the theologies of Latin american citizens and people folks Latinas and Latinos, this comparative research on my own makes Kim's ebook a worthwhile contribution to modern theological scholarship.
"Simon Kim brings out the worth of the strategy Gutiérrez and Elizondo hired for doing theological mirrored image. He captures superbly how his matters' existence reviews and pastoral management have deeply formed their theological insights and . . . how these insights have formed their pastoral imaginative and prescient and that of various others whom they've got inspired."
