(p.283) Chapter Eight Sensing Futurities
Meaning in Our Bodies

Chapter 8 provides possible trajectories to apply the commitments of body theology in other fields of study. It posits that resourcing the full sensorium of experience and engaging body theology need not be limited to projects that are theological in nature; for example, connections between theological anthropological implications and ethical considerations may be made with body theology commitments in mind. Those interested in exploring other theoretical connections, such as theories of space, theories of architecture, or environmental studies, may find in body theology connections useful to their explorations. The chapter concludes with the hope that constructive body theologies of the future can remain grounded in (and insistent on) the various and diverse kinds of good life desired to be lived.
