How can we speak about God without assuming that God is nothing but our own speaking, nothing but our culture's effort to name what cannot be named? How can we deny that our speaking of God is always culturally located? To answer these questions, we need to pay close attention to what we mean by culture, and how we use this very complex term both in our everyday language and especially in the language of faith.Cultureis an exceedingly complex term that nearly everyone uses, but no one is sure what it means. This work examines various uses of the termculturein theology today.
