In this sense, evangelisation is not an alternative to dialogue or cooperation but an inseparable dimension of it – to ‘evangelise’ from equality and powerlessness is to place oneself at the service of the other and to run the risk of being ‘converted’, or the possibility that, in the dynamics of a common history, and not as an artificial ‘synthesis’ produced in a theological laboratory, a new common identity may emerge. ref eren c es a n d f u rther re a d i n g This is only an initial bibliography in which I have privileged books in English except in cases in which there is only Spanish or Portuguese bibliography.

Maryknoll 3 India Kirsteen Kim Distinctively Indian Christian theologies began to emerge in international discussion nearly two hundred years ago. The late 1960s and 1970s saw the publication of several volumes analysing the life and work of pioneers by Robin Boyd (1969), Kaj Baago (1969), M. M. Thomas (1970) and Stanley Samartha (1974). These were used as texts for seminary courses on Indian Christian theology, which in turn stimulated further theological endeavours to understand Indian religions and society and respond in a way that was ‘biblically sound, spiritually satisfying, theologically credible, and pastorally helpful’ (Samartha 1991: ix) in the Indian context.

But it was implicit. As the conditions of life deteriorate and suffering and active patience become a fundamental part of the struggle for liberation, the consciousness of the need to make explicit that ‘spirituality’ makes itself felt. Gutierrez’ books, The Power of the Poor in History and particularly On Job: God Talk and the Suffering of the Innocent (a meditation on the book of Job) are good examples of this theological concern. John Sobrino, Segundo Galilea, Julio de Santa Ana, Jaci Maraschin, Elsa Tamez, and others have contributed to this reflection.
