Example text

We view theology as inventive and experimental, as a testing of itself in a continual process of transformation as well as a testing ground of and for other discourses, ideas, energies, and practices. Theology does live off itself, or its own traditions and histories, which can be stifling—and in that case should be treated as Martin Luther wanted to treat the book of James, namely, by chucking it into the fireplace. Much of the time, when we think theologically (or otherwise), we substitute catchphrases for ideas, once more mining historical archives for predetermined conclusions, words degenerating into platitudes and clichés.
