Written originally as a response to the second of two papers delivered by William Storrar at the University of Pretoria in 2008, this article aims to clarify his view of doing public theology in a global era. His approach is described as affirmation of the inherent public content, public rationality and public significance of Christian faith. His use of the notion of ‘public’ is also discussed, with reference to the work of Dirkie Smit, as is his emphasis on both the local and global in a context of globalization. Storrar’s renewed use of middle axioms is described as an important contribution to public theology today, as is his notion of ‘neighbourhood saints’.
