Product Description

Theologian Darby Ray suggests turning Christian behavior from the compliant to the prophetic through "christic imagination."

"Part of what is means to be a Christian," Ray says, "is to live creatively and courageously, using 'christic imagination' to confront evil in ingenious, unexpected ways." Ray's ethic of incarnation and ingenuity therefore imbues resistance and cunning with the power of the sacred and "recognizes ingenuity, imagination, cunning, surprise, and parody as appropriate and responsible responses to certain contexts and quandaries."
