Towards a Catholic theology in the African context

Insights and Reservations from Karl Adam's Theology

By Denis Mpanga

A Catholic Theology in a current African context remains a challenge for theologians. How can authentic African elements contribute to a catholic theological discourse that can contribute to a re-awakening of contextual theological reconstructions faithful to cultural contexts? This work responds bringing into dialogue one of the renowned German theologians (Karl Adam), and showing his success in his contextual theological project, but also evidencing his failures, and thereby setting boundaries for contextual theological constructions. Denis Mpanga is Catholic priest of the Archdiocese of Kampala (Uganda), working as Fidei Donum priest in Germany (Rottenburg-Stuttgart).
