When Theology and Cultural Studies Meet

Sounds like he is talking about what I am doing ...

'Experts in cultural studies will doubtless find the theology [in this book] strange, and theologians will raise their eyebrows at the cultural studies [in the book]. I am sorry if I disappoint both parties but this is my last and I must stick to it. I am sure it is not the only path into the theological future but I am equally sure it is one of them.'

----- Timothy J. Gorringe,
preface to Furthering Humanity: A Theology of Culture (Aldershot: Ashgate, 2004)
