"Davies produces a work that is at once radical and very traditional for a Western theology--one that is well worth reading." James W. Farwell, The General Theological Seminary
Theological tradition has lost the sense of the createdness of the world, leading to a complete disjunction between the way we know God and knowing the world. Both the Johannine tradition of creation through the Word and a Eucharistic semiotic of Christ as the embodied creative speech of God serve the project of a repairal of Christian cosmology. This book sets out a new understanding of the real therefore, as encountered in and through Jesus Christ, and explores the new modes of ecclesial reasoning and embodiment which flow from it.
