FORTY YEARS OF INDIAN THEOLOGICAL ASSOCIATION: MILESTONES AND SIGNPOSTS
Indian Theological Association Statement 2017
The members of the Indian Theological Association gathered together for the celebration of its Ruby Jubilee from 26-29 April 2017, at Montfort Spirituality Centre Bengaluru. The theme chosen for this memorable event was: Forty Years of the Indian Theological Association: Milestones and Signposts. Over the past 40 years, the ITA has striven to live its prophetic call to respond to the signs of the times, indicative of the fresh phases of the Reign of God in new terrains and climes. In retrospect, the ITA has left a mark not only on the theological landscape of the Church in India, but also on the Universal Church, through its commitment and dedication to theologizing in the Indian context and its consistent quest for a more relevant theological method. The Jubilee provided an occasion for introspection on its trajectory thus far and a critical examination of its relevance to the Church in India and society at large.
