This is a gratuitous and unserious rant about one thing and one thing only: the use of the phrase “towards a theology of.”
First, the invariable use of “towards” by American academics instead of the more standard American spelling of “toward.” The S imparts no etymological variance or shade of meaning whatsoever; its only purpose is to bolster the stilted sibilance of a faux-intellectual lisp, like that of my freshman-year English teacher whose appreciation of Derrida fixated entirely on the stupefying length of the philosopher’s paragraphs.
Second, the phrase itself is a terrible cliché that keeps popping up in theological publications like whack-a-mole. There is nothing original, there is nothing smart, in using this phrase now. It brands you as a tiresome trundler of thin thought.
Third, speaking at all about a “theology of” is backward. Theology is the Queen of the Sciences, not the science of seminary queens. It is not a thing that can be enlisted to dignify some relatively minor preoccupation. The correct question is “What has theology to say about X?” not “What new perspective has X to contribute to theology?” Perhaps sometimes the former is what people mean when they use the phrase, but in my experience it skews toward the latter.
