In what follows I will place “theology” and “culture” together around a set of core social relations, defining and configuring these relations within a trinitarian and incarnational theological framework, drawn largely from the thought of Scottish Reformed theologian T. F. Torrance. 1 I will then suggest that this particular theological vision, and the configuration of social relationships it suggests, not only accounts for the emergence of human culture and cultural activity, but is open to insights from work being done in other social-scientific disciplines. 2 Convergence between these other disciplines and the theological vision developed here will be demonstrated through brief considerations of the work of cultural anthropologist Ernest Becker and the sociologists Christian Smith and Peter Berger.
