What Is Theology?

Paul explores the question, “What is theology?”

The way that Karl Barth has said the same thing is, as he was reading Romans the “strange new world of the Bible opened up to him.”  What he means by that is he began to enter into a different world because of his realization and understanding of who God is in Christ.  That thrilling discovery of an alternative cosmos, an alternative world, I’m afraid is precisely what is lost in scholastic, classical, evangelical, even protestant approaches.  The very way in which they engage the world has left most of the world untouched by what I would consider the foundational understanding.
