holistic theology

“The task of reflection performed by theology interacts with the praxis of practitioners, one not dominating or dismissing the other, but rising like incense to the heavens, carrying with it a sweeter aroma of God’s holistic work in our holistic existence

This method, then, assumes that a particularly Christian theology must be a theology that is with and for the church, listening and speaking, and so with this in mind I argue that such a theology must include elements that are not traditionally seen as systematic theology.

For systematic theology to be truly systematic about its role, however, it must relearn how to communicate with the church, and for the church to regain its theological moorings so that it has integrity with its history and its context, it must find a way of reintegrating the insights of systematic theology.”
