The Middle East and foremost Palestine form the heartland of
Christianity. At the same time Palestine lies in the centre of
the Arab-Israeli conflict. And since the Arab Spring brought rather
political drought than blossom to the region, Palestinian society becomes
more and more exposed to religious extremism. Nonetheless,
the Holy Land of Jews, Christians, and Muslims alike, constitutes
with its enormous diversity of sects and communities an unparalleled
germ for dialogue at the crossroad of religions and cultures.

From this historical setting Palestinian Contextual Theology arises as
a collective and ecumenical project. For more than 30 years now, believers,
scholars, and priests from a wide range of institutions in the
Holy Land approached essential questions for the Palestinian people
and their struggle for liberation from a theological angle:
What does it mean to be an Arab Palestinian Christian here and now?
What are their vocations, missions, and witnesses?
