Introduction to Theological Ideas for Social Transformation, with Dr. Jay Johnson offers an introduction to theological thinking and theological ideas as these relate broadly to our cultural contexts and the ongoing work of social transformation. “Theology” means both simply and broadly “words about God.” In Christian traditions, however, those words about God have always been rooted in and return often to reflection on Jesus Christ; who God is and even what the word “God” means must always be evaluated with reference to Jesus
