What is theology?

Our friend Michael Westmoreland-White tries to answer this question in an excellent post. Theology, he says, is:

  1. pluralistic (as a struggle for truth rooted in the conflict between different contexts and traditions)
  2. narrative-based (using scripture to construe the community’s lived experience)
  3. rational (as an intellectual practice rooted in communal practices)
  4. self-involving (as a practice that takes place within the convictional community)
What do you think?
