    'the curious fact that … the Lord always puts us on the just side': Reinhold Niebuhr, America, and Christian realism2012In: Studia Theologica, ISSN 0039-338X, E-ISSN 1502-7791, Vol. 66, no 1, p. 41-61Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Theologian Reinhold Niebuhr has had and still has an exceptionally large influence on American political thinking. The nation-state, in his case primarily the USA, was throughout his career both the main context and the primary object for his thinking. Christian faith, he thinks, is validated by its ability to interpret human reality, including the world of nations. However, this article argues that Niebuhr fails to show the descriptive power of Christian faith. This has to do with both an inadequate understanding of theological rationality and a weak ecclesiology.

    Minority theology: Theological perspectives on a complex field2023In: Studia Theologica, ISSN 0039-338X, E-ISSN 1502-7791, Vol. 77, no 1, p. 77-101Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this article is to contribute to the development of minority theology by actualizing, developing and assessing a set of analytic tools. We strive to fulfil this aim by pursuing three parallel paths. Firstly, we relate our discussion of minority theology to other kinds of minority studies in order to benefit from theoretical perspectives and empirical findings provided by other disciplines. Secondly, because minority theology is a consequence of religious diversity, we explore how concepts developed in theology of religions and aimed at clarifying the relation to the (religious) other, can prove helpful for the task of identifying and analysing the theological coping strategies and the identity work adopted by both majorities and minorities. Thirdly, in order to avoid an all-too-encompassing definition of minority studies in theology, which might lead to a blurring of the concept, we develop and argue for a distinction between theology by, about, because of, and with minorities.
