Theos and Public Theology

(p.131) Chapter 4 Doing God
God's Agents

Matthew Engelke

University of California Press

Chapter 4 shifts attention in the book to Theos, the Bible Society’s “public theology think tank.” Theos was launched in 2006 and was in many ways the most visible and stable platform for Bible advocacy. The mandate for Theos was to produce “public theology,” and this first chapter on their work looks in particular at efforts to “do God,” picking up most directly on the resonance of this phrase among Christians involved in public life. After detailing the launch of Theos in November 2006, the chapter returns us to the Palace of Westminster and how Theos weighed in on issues of constitutional reform.
