Lisa’s area of specialization is Christianformation; spirituality.
and religious leadership education. Her recent work redresses contemporary theological education with an intentional formation in radically covenantal companionship, embodied in a disciplined spiritual stewardship or contemplative empiricism. Rooted in love’s rationality, such a compassionate theology promises an interpretation of situations but also an expressive theological delight able to companion the suffering of self and others. Author of An Artisanal Theology (Cascade 2009), a radically covenantal approach to ministry formation, she is focusing her research on “correlation” and the promise of Jean-Luc Marion’s philosophical and theological work for a postmetaphysical, noncorrelational practical theology.
