The Revelatory Body | by Luke Timothy Johnson

The Revelatory Body: Theology as Inductive Art

The Revelatory Body: Theology as Inductive Art by Luke Timothy Johnson
(Eerdmans, 2015, 256 pages)

In The Revelatory Body, Luke Timothy Johnson makes the case that theological reflection is incomplete if it deals only with the written word. Careful attention must also be paid to the human, bodily experiences of play, pain, work, and aging. These experiences tell us things about the divine that we cannot garner from texts alone. Johnson’s book is packed with wisdom and good sense. An extended review should appear in the Advent 2015 print issue of The Englewood Review of Books.
