Example text

The questions that prompt us to do theology arise from many quarters. They may derive from our own personal quests, but they often arise within the church. Perhaps our congregation is trying to decide an issue relating to its own life together. Our denomination may be facing an issue with broad ramifications for church policy and for the ways people think about themselves, their fellow Christians, and how they will speak about God, Christ, and the Spirit. However these questions originate, we find ourselves trying to think about them in light of our faith commitments.

To take just one example, biblical interpretation has occurred for centuries, yielding its own set of rules and practices that are widely recognized, even if they are practiced differently. Or, when we engage in thought, we use principles of logic and common sense that constitute a set of assumptions that is widely shared, even among archrivals. We all recognize inconsistency as something we avoid rather than strive for. And so on. Without developing an entire taxonomy of theological practices, we can see how doing theology both presupposes and utilizes such practices.

It may be some crisis within the life of the believer or the community—an unexpected death, a breach of trust, a broken relationship, or an argument. It may be a crisis within the larger society— a war; a famine, an earthquake, or some other natural disaster; repressive measures taken by a hostile government against one’s religious group; or an economic crisis. It may be a question asked by someone inside or outside the community—a question about a text, a religious practice, or a belief. It need not be a crisis at all.
