   - Metz’s Political Theology & the Catholic Social Teaching on Property

Some people regard matters of faith to be transcendental while others take them to be praxis-oriented. This book is an attempt to respond to a growing number of people who desire to identify with and engage a theology that is practically oriented as opposed to the mostly used transcendental theology. The book evaluates the political theology of Johann-Baptist Metz, a disciple of the theologian Karl Rahner and uses the Catholic tradition of Social teaching to engage critical issues such as land ownership and reform in Zimbabwe. Practical theology can articulate Catholic Social teaching which seeks to bring about positive change in social justice especially in the developing world such as Zimbabwe. A retrieval of this teaching in order to ‘turn to the person’ is imperative in order to arrive at praxis-oriented social, economic, and political arrangements in a world thirsty of justice.
