Radical Theology + Liberation Theology = ???

Radical Theology + Liberation Theology = ??? July 3, 2013

Process theology and radical theology flirted at Subverting the Norm 2 in April. Will they get married? Maybe, but I doubt it. With Bultmanniac, I’m interested in the flirtations of radical and liberation theologies. He suggests that might happen over Christology:

Radical tradition doesn’t “do” anything (to embody Christ, necessarily).  And Liberation theology (and those from the non-white traditions) fail to adequately deal with its metaphysics (see this article from the Other Journal), which in my opinion replicate and perpetuate oppressive powers within their racial and ethnic spaces (i.e. strong patriarchy).

In the future, I’m not sure if there’ll ever be a theological friendship between Liberation and Radical, the way that was found between Process and Radical at Subverting the Norm 2.  Perhaps (intended), there can be one formed over Christology, a direction I believe and hope the Radical tradition is heading.
