Fr Michael’s approach to Political Theology is shaped to a large degree by the way that both European political theology and Latin American liberation theology have had to acknowledge a new cultural context, one that is 'postmodern', 'post-Marxist', etc. What does a responsible Christian political commitment look like in such an uncertain setting? He is also keen to explore culture and literature, rather than philosophy, as a distinctive and vital approach to theological questions. He is therefore interested in issues arising from hermeneutics (theory of interpretation), and narrative and dramatic styles of theology.
