Imagining Theology: Encounters with God in Scripture, Interpretation, and Aesthetics
Title: Imagining Theology: Encounters with God in Scripture, Interpretation, and Aesthetics
Publisher: Baker Academic
The imagination is where the Creator chooses to meet his creatures, says renowned theologian Garrett Green. The Word of God and the work of the Holy Spirit set the imagination free for genuine and creative knowledge of God, the world, others, and the self. Green explains that theology is best understood as human imagination faithfully conformed to the Bible as the paradigmatic key to the Christian gospel. He unpacks the implications of the imagination for a variety of theological issues, such as interpretation, aesthetics, eschatology, and the relationship between church and culture.
