This article draws on the sketch of an emerging paradigm of mission provided by David Bosch and adopts the premise that we can see a new public paradigm operating in the field of public theology. A truly public theology operates in the public sphere. Today the public sphere is global, torn and divided. Public theology should help to create a more inclusive public sphere in which the public anger of the silenced and excluded voices of the oppressed and marginalized can be heard and addressed by policymakers and practitioners. Public theologies have the task of bringing that public anger to effective policy resolution, while resisting the privatization of areas of national life that once were scrutinized in the public domain. Public theologians have to identify issues of public concern that have already been removed from public scrutiny, developing civic and political strategies to bring them back into an expanded public sphere.
