Chauvet on Christian theology

Theological discourse, even in all its rigor, must therefore touch the quick of the subject. The critical thrust in Christian theology is precisely this in our opinion: to show the conditions which render possible a passage — a passage which must be continually undertaken — from the attitude of a slave toward a Master imagined as all-powerful, clothed in the traditional panoply of the attributes of esse, to the attitude of a child toward a God represented from differently because this God is seen always in the shadow of the cross, and thus to the attitude of a brother or a sister toward others.
