Abstract

Stephen Bevans and Roger Schroeder suggest that “prophetic dialogue” is the most appropriate category or metaphor for Christian mission today.2 This paper explores the significance and implications of “prophetic dialogue” for the task of practical theology. Whereas “prophecy” gives priority to the Word of God in scripture and tradition, “dialogue” highlights the importance of respectful human, cultural and religious encounter. Both components are necessary; their relationship is dialectical. Whether we are concerned with worship and liturgy, prayer and contemplation, justice and peace, the integrity of creation, interreligious dialogue, evangelization, inculturation or reconciliation, prophetic dialogue is a significant category for gauging the effectiveness and authenticity of the theological task. Panikkar’s “cosmotheandric” dialogue and the “triple dialogue” advocated by the Federation of the Asian Bishops’ Conferences are two possible avenues for advancing “prophetic dialogue.”
