• Engaging in Heart Theology as Moravians

      Gubi, Peter M.; University of Chester (Moravian Church, 2016-10-01)
      Interpretation (or hermeneutics) has always been part of the Christian experience of discerning what God is saying to us as 'individuals' or as 'community', through text (scripture) and personal experience. In the study of theology, there are many methods for systematically guiding interpretation. One method of theological interpretation is that of 'Heart Theology'. This mode of theological reflection was used extensively by Augustine, and developed further by the Pietist Movement which strongly influenced the work and theology of Zinzendorf1. Moravians often say that they don't have a Moravian Theology. However, they do have a method of establishing a theology - which is Heart Theology.
