Theology and the Globalized Present: Feasting in the Future of God

Theology and the Globalized Present focuses on the world’s future in God and God’s creativeness. In response to a globalized economy that reconfigures time to the detriment of human flourishing, McDowell presents a re-imagined theological vision. This vision offers a constructive retemporalizing interrogation and eschatological memory, and suggestions for beginning that are teased out broadly with reference to Eucharistic performance. This entails not so much a dreaming of a different world as a dreaming of this world differently. The theological materials offer a temporality that is hope-generating, critically attentive to the inequitable character of features of our world, and educative of ethical wisdom in a self-regulating and emancipatory witness of remembering and anticipating the transformative presence of God.
