THEOLOGY OF TRANSFORMATION:
FAITH, FREEDOM AND THE CHRISTIAN ACT
This book, which was seven years in the writing, sets out Transformation Theology as a comprehensive new orientation within theology. As the dualism of modernity recedes, it is argued here that the age of Modern Theology, with its far-reaching dualistic presuppositions, is also coming to an end and that we need to negotiate a new theological orientation which reflects the non-reductive physicalism of contemporary science, rather than an outmoded Newtonianism. This has implications both for our theological method and for the way in which academic theology takes the person of Jesus Christ as its object and ground. The theology that emerges here is scriptural and traditional as well as deeply contemporary, and it is addressed to all the Christian communities for whom academic theology is important as feeding into the life of faith. It is important too for theologians, young and old, who look to the life of faith and active discipleship as the unparalleled source of meaning for Christian theology. It is in the place of actual encounter with Christ that the thinking about Christ and towards him which is academic theology should seek its rationale first and foremost, resisting a sophisticated apologetics as foundation on the one hand and an ebullient celebration of the autonomy of theology on the other.
