Week 5 – Theology…Culture: Cobb; Chp. 5

In this chapter Cobb provides us with some cultural texts with which to discern a cultural perspective, desire or receptivity to God. Although I appreciated his insight, I’m not sure that his analysis and approach is all that new. He certainly offers a depth in some places as to seeing the nature of a cultural understanding or desire of God.  Perhaps what is most significant here is that he points us to reading the culture.  Alas, but to what end?  Unless my memory is short and it’s been covered, the tools are great for discernment.  What nature should or how do we use this information once we discern it?
