Theology is about us, not about measuring an object the way a butcher scrutinizes a piece of meat. Theology is not an unbiased look at a distant subject matter. It is about us…. Theology talks about our lives as if our lives matter. The question is not about how to describe the Trinity, but about how to be friends with the triune God…. Theological questions are questions of life and death (Dt. 30:19). The theological perspective is not detached and unbiased.”

– Clemens Sedmak, Doing Local Theology
