In the work I am doing for London and Cambridge, I am reflecting on a theology for the entrepreneur. The preposition “for” is critical in that it focuses the work. I am not seeking to develop a theology of entrepreneurship, others may do so. I am seeking to develop a theology for the entrepreneur. This theology is particular. It is missiological, and pedagogical in its focus. Its purpose is to provide grounded context for the life of the entrepreneur. Thus, it must be interpreted, and incarnated as must all missiological works. From this foundation, it may be translated into pedagogical form. We need a theology that can speak “to”, not just “of” the entrepreneur.
The problem is that we are so lost in our own methods and definitions that we cannot identify with those we were called to serve.
