Creativity of God by Professor Oliver Davies
Book DescriptionWe have, as a theological community, generally lost a language in which to speak of the created-ness of the world. As a consequence, our discourses of reason cannot bridge the way we know God and the way we know the world. Therefore, argues Oliver Davies, a primary task of contemporary theology is the regeneration of a Christian account of the world as sacramental, leading to the formation of a Christian conception of reason and a new Christocentric understanding of the real. Both the Johannine tradition of creation through the Word and a Eucharistic semiotics of Christ as the embodied, sacrificial and creative speech of God serve the project of a repairal of Christian cosmology. The world itself is viewed as a creative text authored by God, of which we as interpreters are an integral part. This is a wide-ranging and convincing book that makes an important contribution to modern theology.

Books By Author Professor Oliver Davies
One-Month Money, Hardback (November 2014)
A book, that begins as an eye-opening demonstration of how modern money is often our own worst economic enemy, and ends by proposing a controversial and innovative solution: a simple reinvention of money that would end recessions, inflation and unemployment forever.
Theology of Transformation, Hardback (November 2013)
Theology of Transformation is both a systematic and a practical theology of active discipleship and vocation which, as a renewal of Christology, has implications across the full range of theological topics. Contemporary Christian theology needs to reflect science in pointing to the universal primacy of action in human life and experience.
Silence and the Word, Paperback (June 2008)
Studies the history of apophasis and examines its relationship with secular philosophy.
Transformation Theology, Paperback (December 2007)» View all books by Professor Oliver Davies
Sets out an account of how incarnation is mediated in the world of space and time, leading to a new orientation of theology within the world. This book argues for centrality of sensibility and unresolved problematics of everyday empirical existence as the primary place of divine disclosure in which theology is learned and practiced with integrity.
