Relationality as the basis of hope: embodied experiences during life-threatening illness

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterScientificpeer-review

Abstract

In this chapter we will give examples of embodied experiences during life-threatening illness from various empirical studies conducted through the years. Through our research, we add more theoretical knowledge on hope and despair of those suffering from cancer and AIDS. We have seen a great need to formulate a relational theology in the context of embodied experiences during the process of life-threatening illness. Relational theology will consider both the positive and negative aspects of human relations between themselves and God.
