Indian Theology is lively. There are even those who would find it too lively! But it is still lacking in some important parts of its equipment. Especially it has too few specialists in the Old Testament. Many are those who have been trained in neo-testamental research. But the voice of the Torah, Nebiim and Ketubim is not sufficiently heard in the present debates of Indian Theology. Sometimes for instance, Christian indebtedness to Ancient Israel is summarily dismissed as so much left-over of narrow minded Semitic particularism, exclusivism, aggressiveness, etc., statements which smack ominously of unconscious yet quite effective anti-Semitism. This deficiency in our Theological equipment makes Fr. Luke’s work all the more significant. Dr. Lucien Legrand, St. Peter’s Pontifical Institute, Bangalore.
