Abstract The article offers examples of a post-Reformation theology which could be described as postmodern, post-metaphysical, anti-fundamentalist, immanent transcendent, corporeal, narrative, holistic and secularly spiritual. As examples of the kind of Reformed belief that is increasingly questioned it examines the doctrine of revelation, the doctrine of God and of salvation, with proposals of how they could be accommodated in an immanent transcendent model. Philosophy of consciousness (with reference to Hegel and Sartre) serves to clarify the transcendentally wired nature of human consciousness. The underlying question is how affect can be understood in a rational, epistemological framework. Human consciousness has to be linked to bodily functions, more especially emotions, to appreciate how religious experience occurs in a secular spiritual context. Narrative is spotlighted as the medium that is pre-eminently suited to convey a holistic concept of religious experience.
