Manifesto for theological research

Fernando Gros sets out a kind of manifesto for theological research which warmed my heart somewhat, bringing a breath of humanity to a subject that can be in danger of becoming dry and divisive.

He suggests four areas where theological research needs to take care: Respect of Persons, Social Benefits of Religious and Theological commitments, Effective Dissemination of Knowledge, and Interrogating the difference between doctrine and practice.

It occurs to me that these four areas are in harmony with the way Jesus engaged with people to help them understand their relationship with God. Have a read of Fernando’s post and contribute a comment.
