Abstract

Will Storrar makes the case for a glocal public theology arguing that where the practitioner is located matters. The underlying assumption is the need for 'good partners' and the possibility of theologies in one site critically informing another. What needs to be negotiated is the extent to which these 'partnerships' are uneven. The idea of a public theology surfaced in the established centres of the western theological tradition, but how can the categories of a public theology developed in the United States, for example, inform the shape of a comparable theology in Australia? The benefit of exploring this question is that it enables the history and critical scholarship of two locations to be named. For the more solid establishment of a public theology in Australia this is a strategic task, since the term is being used increasingly, but with arguably insufficient attention being paid to meaning, definition and task.
