Barker (Chapter 1)

We owe a great deal of the modern attempt to discipline the cultural study by the Center for Contemporary Cultural Studies in Birmingham University of UK.  It seems as though the effort to establish it as a field of study has not been easy due to it’s interdisciplinary and fluid in nature.  The idea of meaning, interpretation and truth seems to take up much of the current epistemological debate.  However, careful application of both quantitative and qualitative methods can clarify many questions on culture.


Models of Contextual Theology (chapter 1)

January 9, 2008

I’ve always thought of theology as a system of belief formulated from the Bible in a more logical and systematic way for everyone, particularly those who are young in faith so they can grasp the tenets of Christianity more easily and not necessarily an expression of certain context.  According to this chapter, this idea would be equivalent to the biblical and traditional part of theology.  According to this chapter, even this first two part of theology was formulated within the context, both in biblical history and early church socio-econo-political environment.  Therefore I am challenged to think of Theology in terms of my own context to make it relevant to me and my world.
