Abstract

What happens when a burned-out North American pastor pragmatist drinks from the wells of good Trinitarian theology A human-centered ministry driven by the effort to meet needs and respond to deficits — is invited instead to be shaped by God’s grace and participate through the Spirit in Christ’s response to God on our behalf. This theological truth not only changes hearts, it can shape entire approaches to our engagement in the world. Studying with James Torrance opened up the recognition that good theology is immensely practical — and that all practice is rooted in good (or not so good) theology.
