Chapter Summary

This chapter shows how the generations differ and how precisely the ever-changing context affects them in their doing theology. Compared to the two extremes of contextual theology in Asia-Indian theology which is rich in tradition and determined by its dialogue with Hinduism and Filipino theology which is strongly oriented towards Latin American liberation theology. Minjung theology was the first synthesis between the socio-economic, political and cultural-religious types of contextual theology in the Asian context. In retrospect Hwang Hong-Eyoul sees ideological orientation as one of the obstacles of the second generation: "the revival of Marxist ideology was a backdrop to the formation of the minjung church". Due to the dynamics of the socio-economic, political and cultural parameters the question for the Christus praesens has to be asked time and again by Christian theologians. Minjung theology then would simply become the brand name of a Korean-made theology.
