Theological tradition has lost its sense of the created nature of the world, leading to a complete break between the way we know God and the world. The Johannine tradition of creation through the Word and a Eucharistic semiotic of Christ as the embodied creative speech of God serve to reintegrate Christian cosmology. This book sets out "a new understanding" of reality, as encountered in and through Jesus Christ, and explores new modes of ecclesial reasoning.

Book Description:

Theological tradition has lost the sense of the createdness of the world, leading to a complete disjunction between the way we know God and knowing the world. Both the Johannine tradition of creation through the Word and a Eucharistic semiotic of Christ as the embodied creative speech of God serve the project of a repairal of Christian cosmology. This book sets out a new understanding of the real therefore, as encountered in and through Jesus Christ, and explores the new modes of ecclesial reasoning and embodiment which flow from it.

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2010. Hardback. Condition: New. New.. Language: English. Brand new Book. We have, as a theological community, generally lost a language in which to speak of the created-ness of the world. As a consequence, our discourses of reason cannot bridge the way we know God and the way we know the world. Therefore, argues Oliver Davies, a primary task of contemporary theology is the regeneration of a Christian account of the world as sacramental, leading to the formation of a Christian conception of reason and a new Christocentric understanding of the real. Both the Johannine tradition of creation through the Word and a Eucharistic semiotics of Christ as the embodied, sacrificial and creative speech of God serve the project of a repairal of Christian cosmology. The world itself is viewed as a creative text authored by God, of which we as interpreters are an integral part. This is a wide-ranging and convincing book that makes an important contribution to modern theology. Seller Inventory # APC9780521831178
