Rather, I take it for granted that theology’s major part in the ideologies of all human cultures, not excluding the present, always functions to shape our world. ‘The faith and trust of the heart make both God and idol,’ said Luther.

We have to come to terms with a world population which has doubled in fifty years to top  billion, and which has to be not just fed, but housed. We have to come to terms with a change in the balance of human settlements which has profound psychic and spiritual consequences for us.
