Salvation and Liberation in the Practical-Critical Soteriology of Schillebeeckx

[The practical-critical soteriology of Schillebeeckx understands and orients the experience of salvation in relation to liberating political praxis and social emancipation. Practical-critical soteriology develops the claim that liberation is intrinsic to and constitutive for the experience and interpretation of eschatological salvation. The interaction between liberation and salvation in his soteriology can be described as an interdependent yet fragmented identity amid productive difference. Schillebeeckx’s soteriology constructs their identity and difference on the basis of the biblical dialectic regarding the lifepraxis, execution, and Resurrection of Jesus, the eschatological advocate of God’s preferential solidarity.]
