All orthodoxies require doctrinal closure. This overview argues that theological thinking cannot in principle reach closure when the subjects of theophany are unfinished, when God god self is unfinished, and when theophany itself is “new creation.” It closes with reflections on how Wallace Stevens’s poem “The Man with the Blue Guitar” expresses this active relationality within an essentially unfinished reality.

Keywords:   speculative theology, doctrinal closure, unfinished God, Blue Guitar
