Her process is unapologetically theological, grounded within the passions and issues of mainstream doctrinal theology. And but she is insisting . . . that tune needs to be given its due position within the ecology of theology. even if confident that track shouldn't be manage as a rival to linguistic or conceptual articulation, not to mention swallow up ‘traditional’ modes of theological language and inspiration, she is both confident that tune is an irreducible technique of coming to phrases with the area, a distinct motor vehicle of world-disclosure, and as such, can generate a specific type of ‘understanding’: ‘there are issues which God may possibly in basic terms be asserting via music.’ if that is so, it really is incumbent at the theologian to listen.”
