Living Theologies: Reflections from Diverse Specificities is a compendium of theological, ecclesial and missional articulations from different perspectives that speak to the situations we live by. These reflections have emerged out of the intersections of faith, culture, traditions, ethics, etc., as they provide the rich resource for theologising in a particular context. As we live in difficult situations that are compounded by the pandemic, economic crisis, crony capitalism, discrimination, division and so on, these reflections reassert and reaffirm our faith in God whom we believe.

As our journey of faith is beset with problems and issues that threaten our life and the livelihood of people, these reflections provide the means by which we can strengthen our faith in God as he leads us on. To that end, if these reflections find meaning and relevance, to enlarge the horizons of our understanding of God’s plan for us; to provoke and strengthen our faith and encourage us to move forward with God who enables us by his presence to cope with the situations, the editors would be satisfied.
