Tribal Hermeneutics for a Contextual Theology

Tribal Hermeneutics for a Contextual TheologyBy Mathew George Kariapuram

About the Book:
The realisation that tribal Christian Indian holds rich hermeneutical potential in effecting a contextual theology is slowly dawning on various theological circles in India. So far the experience of the tribal people of India has not figured much in the theological reflections undertaken in the country. The author makes a serious attempt to unearth the hermeneutical wealth of tribal traditions and suggests ways and means to initiate theological reflection in the context of tribal peoples and cultures.
