The Revelatory Body free pdf "Argues that theology can respond faithfully to the living God only by paying due attention to human bodily experience" Scripture points to the human body and lived experience as the preeminent arena of God's continuing revelation in the world, says Luke Timothy Johnson. Attentively discerning the manifestations of God's Spirit in and through the body is essential for theology to recover its nature as an inductive art rather than as traditionally conceived a deductive science. Willingness to risk engaging actual human situations as opposed to abstract conceptualizations of those situations is required of the theologian, Johnson argues. He celebrates the intimations of divine presence and power in such human experiences as play, pain, pleasure, work, and aging, showing how theology can respond faithfully to the living God only by paying due attention to human bodily experience."
