In the 1970s and 1980s new theologies, called “liberation,” and “local” or “contextual” theologies, erupted where the Enlightenment theologies of Europe and North America failed to respond to people’s needs. Now, “globalization” sweeps over the world with technologies that compress time and space, where cultures homogenize even as new particularisms arise. Following on his widely-acclaimed Construcint Local Theologies, Robert J. Schreiter’s The New Catholicity takes a close look at this complex and rapidly changing environment and traces the issues that are reshaping theology today. Encompassing recent developments in anthropology, sociology, philosophy, and communication theory THE NEW CATHOLICITY explores the many aspects of globalization that challenge Christianity as it enters into its third millennium. 105883 Robert J.
