This chapter presents an Interview of Richard Kearney by Mark Manolopoulos regarding the debates of Kearney with other philosophers and his works in general. In discussing the theology of the gift, Kearney holds that what he is doing in The God Who May Be is not theology, but a hermeneutics of religion. The transfiguring God is the God who transfigures people as people transfigure God. God transfigures them through creation, through interventions in history, and for Kearney, divinity is transfiguring the everyday. For him, eschatology is a great kind of recollection, retrieval, or recapitulation of all special moments of love when the Kingdom comes. He also shares that the poeticizing God engages in a cocreation with people. God cannot create the Kingdom unless people create the space for the Kingdom to come. God created the world in six days and left the seventh day free for people to complete it.
