Abstract

DE GRUCHY, John W.. Christian humanism, progressive Christianity and social transformation. J. Study Relig. [online]. 2018, vol.31, n.1, pp.54-69. ISSN 2413-3027.  http://dx.doi.org/10.17159/2413-3027/2018/v31n1a3.

This article explores my understanding of Christian humanism in conversation with Martin Prozesky's notion of progressive Christianity and their relevance for social transformation. Central to the conversation is how we understand the role of creeds and confessions in Christian faith, and the significance of the confession that Jesus, the truly human one, is the Christ of faith. This leads me into a discussion on the Incarnation as the foundation for Christian humanism, and Eucharistic community as the embodiment and agent of social transformation.

Keywords : Christian humanism; Progressive Christianity; Christian Theology; creeds; confessions; Christian faith; incarnation; eucharist; Social Transformation.
