This booklet will serve its fundamental function, for this reason, if it first offers those that have no idea the culture good with a entire view and demanding seize of that culture; and, moment, if it persuades those that do recognize the culture that the duty of serious appropriation and assimilation isn't entire, and that the culture is healthier preserved now not by way of repeating it oftentimes, yet via freshly rethinking and reapplying it in each new age and situation, and certainly within the face of each new hindrance of progress or decline. but when readers are to know the content material of this colossal ebook, they have to take hold of its approach to boot. the tactic is person who David Tracy has referred to as “critical correlation,” that's a amendment of Paul Tillich’s recognized “method of correlation” (see Tillich’s Systematic Theology, vol. 1, Chicago: college of Chicago Press, 1951, pp. 67–73). The correlation is among the Christian message (Scripture, doctrines, creeds, nonbiblical texts, occasions, pictures, individuals, rituals) and the human state of affairs.

Following the “method of serious correlation” that's in most cases authorized and hired by way of mainline Catholic theologians this day, this booklet attends significantly to either poles of the dialectic. at the one hand, it seeks to supply a serious appropriation of the Christian message, drawing upon the findings of latest biblical, theological, and old scholarship; however, the e-book seeks to supply a severe appropriation of the human state of affairs, of the type of advancements indexed in Vatican II’s Pastoral structure at the Church within the smooth global, nn. 4–10 (see specifically bankruptcy three of this book). The correlation of the Christian message and the human scenario in a mutual dialog, or discussion, has yet a unmarried purpose: to attract out of our serious mirrored image upon Christian religion (which is theology) the results of “right trust” (orthodoxy), “right perform” (orthopraxis), and “right worship. ” The latter , as indicated above, are folded into the single overarching suggestion of “discipleship.
