What is "Contextual Theology?"

Contextual Theology, or inculturation, is understanding the Christian faith within a specific cultural framework.  This type of theological process attempts to create a more meaningful, understandable, and relevant Christian experience by using inclusive and culturally appropriate language, music, and ideas.
