What is the relationship between Christian theology as a set of practices (liturgies, Bible readings, academic research, doctrinal commissions) and "culture" more generally? Graham Ward examines how cultural transformation happens and how the practices of theology can influence that transformation specifically. This essay in theological method offers a new approach to the nature of cultural activity interpretation.
