A Theology of Southeast Asia
By: Agnes M. Brazal
“To the extent that Christianity opens itself to other traditions, it will become different. Not that it will be less Christian or cease to be Christian altogether. It will simply be taking one more step toward catholicity, the fullness it claims to anticipate in the coming reign of God.”—Catherine Cornille, from the Series Foreword
Based on the Duffy lectures she delivered at Boston College in 2017, Agnes M. Brazal explores many diverse facets of theology and ethics in the Philippines, including cyberethics and populism, traditional Bai theology, and the struggles of indigenous peoples. This rich work will be of interest not only to Filipino theologians but also to all those interested in doing vernacular, liberation, and postcolonial theologies.
Agnes M. Brazal is associate professor of theology at De La Salle University in Manila, Philippines, and a past president and founding member of the DaKaTeo (Catholic Theological Society of the Philippines). She is co-editor (with M. T. Davila) of Living with(out) Borders: Catholic Theological Ethics on the Migrations of Peoples (Orbis 2016). She is also co-editor of Feminist Cyberethics in Asia.
