Transformation Theology is a theological movement which originates in Systematic and Philosophical Theology.
It takes as its hermeneutic the axiom of the transformation of the world by the power of God.
Transformation always occurs in present space and time, in the 'crowded' or 'solitary' social spaces of human encounter, resilience and struggle, and always holds out the hope of blessing, opportunity and newness of life.
The possibilities of new personal and social transformations are grounded in the living Christ who is himself present in such situations in his transformed state, as wounded and glorified.
Transformation Theologians take this Christ of enacted love to be the present material and formal object of their theology.
To be a theologian of transformation therefore is to seek to be within the missio dei, by which God reaches out in the fullness of his Trinitarian life to touch the world of his making.
Transformation Theology is neither Systematic Theology as such nor Practical Theology as such. It seeks to serve both by bringing about a renewing methodological and reflective convergence of the two.
