Abstract

The coherence between theological theory and praxis; A case study according to Calvin’s doctrine of the Providentia Dei
A crisis of research is being experienced in the Human Sciences because of frequent lack of coherence between theory and praxis. Theories - because of their abstract nature - do not always have relevance for praxis. The crisis is deepened by the lack of ‘translating’ theories into popular writings. In this article the authors argues that the above statement is not always valid. According to Calvin’s doctrine of the Providentia Dei in his Institution and correspondence, the authors not only identify such a coherence but also point out that popular writings substantiate the fact that theories can have practical relevance and thus not remain mere ‘clinical facts’.
