Global Network for Public Theology

070505_GNPT Presentation

Today the Global Network for Public Theology (GNTP) has been officially started, as a conclusion of the consultation that has been held at the Center of Theological Inquiry (CTI) at Princeton NJ. The Centre for Liberation Theologies of the K.U.Leuven Faculty of Theology will be part of the endeavour. The possibilities for international collaboration and exchanges, as well as the opportunity to start a joint global project in which to exercise public theology (e.g. concerning environmental challenges), are attractive.

I have been asked today to give a 15″ presentation of aspects of public theology in which I am involved and I referred to the Centre for Liberation Theologies, to the Advanced Master’s Programme in Conflict and Sustainable Peace, to OCIPE and to the Social Justice Secretariat of the Jesuits (the powerpoint presentation, 2 slides, is attached and also provides a draft vision on the meaning of public theology from the perspective of liberation theologies).
