Jesus After Modernity

The modern mind is half-witted, favoring analysis over synthesis. While purporting to be objective, certain, and precise, it deceives itself in regard to so-called objectivity and overreaches in its attempt to explain the whole of life, instead offering only a truncated notion of truth. Life is full of ambiguities and contradictions. No matter what we do, we cannot eliminate the human context in which we must always perceive the truth.

Good News of God’s Gracious Love

Theologian Shirley Guthrie's marvelous and inspiring reflection on the good news of the gospel: What it is. What it's not. What it means for us. What we must accept!

The Political Illusion

“It is wrong to say that politics is everything, but it is a fact that in our society everything has become political.” When everything is reduced to politics, all problems are perceived as political problems in need of political solutions. This is tragic, for most problems demand more than a political solution.

The New Demons

In spite of the rejection of the explicit language of religion, the "sacred" continues to exist and operate in our modern society. Though "Christianity is no longer the religion of the masses", humankind remains "just as religious as medieval man" (65), for the state is the new sacred, politics the new religion, and technology "the instrument of liberation… the god who saves."
