This chapter discusses how the religious thought of today has become non-representational—where history has been brought to the point now that what we are trying to do in our religious worship, faith, and practice no longer satisfies us. The reason why this has happened is the rise of a new kind of society in which religion does not have any more space in the current method of representing reality: “science”. This chapter also describes how the church has changed historically and how theologians are called commentators, interpreters, and historians where they work as teachers who act as soldiers of the church. Christian faith must seek to articulate in a new way because the period of transition is unavoidably complicated.
