"Doing Local Theology presents the construction of "local theologies" as an enterprise that's not just for specialists. This book promises to become a standard in courses on theological method and foundations of ministry." ""Practitioners of theology - novices and masters alike - are in Clemens Sedmak's debt for his expert and detailed guidance to doing theology as a way of following Jesus, doing theology as Jesus himself did, and constructing 'little theologies' for our postmodern times. Doing Local Theology masterfully blends orthodoxy with orthopraxis, the theoretical with the practical, prayer with reflection, universality with particularity. In this way of doing theology, the local theologian emerges, in Sedmak's memorable phrase, as 'the village cook.' I most warmly recommend this book to those who want to embark upon theology not only as an academic discipline but also as a spiritual ascesis.""--Jacket.
