Making Christology Relevant to the Third World

Applying Christopraxis to Local Struggle


Daniel Lucas Lukito

This study offers a wholistic way of doing christology in a world that is torn apart religiously, economically, and politically. It seeks to broaden the scope of what it means to believe in Christ in today's complex struggle. Using the christology of Choan-Seng Song as the basis, the author sets out to construct a significant Christian contribution in the Indonesian context of struggle. He believes christology can be applied in such a way as to be a part of Christian mission and responsibility. Covering the major points of christology, the book concludes that the church can minister and witness with the perspective of people's needs, to bring about social justice, unity, peace and solidarity.
