The Winnowing and Hallowing of Doctrine: Extending the Program of the Father of Modern Theology

Nicola Hoggard Creegan

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

As a theologian who has interacted with feminism and science, I have picked up Sarah Coakley’s work from time to time with enormous interest, sensing that here is way of progressing in theology which gives some sort of priority to directions that are otherwise seen in some quarters as distractions from the pure discourse of systematics. The whole enterprise of systematic theology in its claim to provide the metanarrative parexcellence can be quite contrary to the spirit of postmodern feminism. Coakley, however, in marrying experience of a certain kind, “field work” and doctrine, overcomes these phallocentric tendencies.
