Item description for The Touch of Transcendence: A Postcolonial Theology of God by Mayra Rivera...

Overview
How far away is God? How different is God from human beings? This is the theological question of transcendence, and theology has long struggled to find answers that affirm a human relationship with God. In this provocative new work, Mayra Rivera's answer is that God is not within human grasp but is always within human touch. With a strikingly relevant concept of God as transcendent within-a transcendence different from the ideas of God as far away, as outside human life and experience, or as above the human plane of existence-Rivera concentrates on transcendence as a relationship and uses it to describe how humans can touch God. In doing so, she engages a number of theological movements, including liberation theology, Radical Orthodoxy, feminism, and postcolonialism.
