This chapter presents an essay of spiritual reality, academic scepticism, and Transfiguration. It mentions several questionable practices in theological research and suggests that Christians have an advantage over other groups in being able to draw on resources of spiritual wisdom from their own heritage and non-Christian traditions. They are also privileged in being able to identify with the risen Jesus Christ in his completed Transfiguration and thereby in his healing and liberating identification with the sick, the poor, and the oppressed.

Keywords: spiritual reality; academic scepticism; Transfiguration; theological research; Christians; Jesus Christ
