Description

This Homebrewed Christianity Guide explores how Christian theology can address itself to rapidly changing paradigms of human existence. What can theology contribute to the knowledge of the human self that we gain through the sciences, physical and social? How is a theological perspective on humanity useful in contemporary pluralistic and global settings? What are the theological significances of work and play? How does gender relate to theological reflection, and do gender and sexuality have theological meaning? What does human creativity and expression reveal to us through a theological lens?

It is no longer possible to assign definitive meaning to categories like man and woman, self and society, freedom and determinism, reason and feeling, soul and body, by reference to systems of narrative (including biblical narrative) and interpretation in which those ideas are taken for granted. The theology of human personhood begins with irreducible experiences both universal and particular, and searches for functional understandings from the whole range of Christian and non-Christian ways of knowing.
