Contextualization in theology is rooted in a missiological imperative. My question is whether or not the scripture can be understood apart from a missiological center. I feel that the theologian who does not understand theology as mission is disconnected from the core. Such disconnect produces spiritual dissonance. If all theology is “missional”, then all theology is contextual. Theology is an expression. All expression requires codification. Codification requires contextualization.
