Overview

Theologians have responded in many different ways to the challenges posed by theories of postmodernity. Kevin J. Vanhoozer addresses the issue directly in an introductory survey of what "talk about God" might mean in a postmodern age. The book offers examples of different types of contemporary theology in relation to postmodernity, and examines the key Christian doctrines in postmodern perspective. Leading theologians contribute to this informative Companion.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This is essential reading for those interested in philosophy, theology, and religious and cultural studies. This is an ideal introduction to the key issues for theology in its encounter with post-modernity." Catholic Library World

"This much-needed volume is a valuable guide through the often-murky waters of postmodern theology." Calvin Theological Journal, Jerry Stutzman

"this is a welcome addition to the growing body of literature on the relationship between Christian theology and what, in his introduction, Vanhoozer helpfully calls the 'postmodern condition'" - Philip D. Kenneson, Milligan College
