Contextual Theology

A preliminary guide to the study of global and contextual theologies.

General Searching Tips

General (catalog, ATLA, etc.):

  • Go from the known (keyword search) to the unknown (subject headings, authors, titles, etc.).
  • Keep a “research log” where you note fruitful searches, subject headings, authors, titles, etc.
  • Avoid the full-text only trap! “Limiting” a search to full-text will limit the quality of your work.
  • Use filters to limit by language or type of publication (book, journal article, etc.).

ATLA specific:

  • Use Scripture index in ATLASerials for articles on pertinent biblical texts.
  • Use the Thesaurus to explore related subject headings in ATLASerials.
  • Set up alerts to keep up-to-date!
