Theopoetics

MrIssimus "Webmaster of theopoetics.net"
The list author says: "From theopoetics.net :

What theopoetics offers us is another path, another tool to help us deepen our faith and challenge passivity and oppression, both on a path toward wholeness. And unlike the proof and comfort of assurance that the tools of religiosity can seem to provide, theopoetics replaces certainty with beauty and sureness with Art. It lets us open old drawers and crates, unpack grandmother’s theology, great grandfathers’s books, and read them in the light, their dust swept aside by the movement of the breath: Spirit.

Theopoetics is a (re)emerging field of interdisciplinary study, combining elements of poetic analysis, process theology, narrative theology, and postmodern philosophy.

Theopoetics suggests that instead of trying to develop a “scientific” theory of God such as would a traditional systematic theology, theologians should instead try to find God through poetry and fiction; or to interpret reality itself as symbolic of some greater or deeper truth.

Thus, the theopoet operates on a continuum: as a theologian working in a poetically interpretive way, and as a poet defining or demarcating the idea of God, maintaining beauty and the knowledge of language’s tenuous nature."
