The New Catholicity: Theology Between the Global and the Local

       In Schreiter's view, a deep irony, perhaps even a paradox, is concealed within the riddle of globalization. Such forces as feminist, liberation, ecological, and global theological movements find their counterparts in anti-globalism, ethnification, and primitivism. Liberation thought in a post-Soviet world seeks to be more realistic about economics but finds 'reformist gradualism' a bitter pill to swallow. Intercultural theologies find analogous difficultieswhen they attend to 'integrated' as opposed to 'globalized' concepts of culture. The seeming polar opposition of [bad] 'syncretism' and [good] 'synthesis' in the context of changing religious indentities end up much less amenable to simple value judgments than they once appeared to be. Orbis Books, 140 pages. Paperback.
