He identifies the conventional or putative claims of theological energy and meaning—sources, referents, and styles or structures—as distractions from or perhaps concealments of the discursive state of affairs within which theologies arise.

Kort first describes the dynamics of distinction and conflicts constituted by way of theologies and the significance of energy for opposing theologies. He offers a version that demonstrates why alterations and conflicts, instead of occasional or peripheral results of theology, are required as principal reasons. He then applies the research and version within the activity of interpreting theologies of greater than a dozen glossy and modern figures.

In his end, Kort returns to the cultural state of affairs he sketched first and foremost, one who creates the stipulations for the research and that's known as "postmodern." Kort calls it "a tradition of scripture and belief," and he discusses customers for theology in a tradition now not characterised by means of the actual fact and simple task. "The tradition of scripture and trust" demands theologies which are either forceful and liable to critique.
