Radical Orthodoxy is the most influential theological development in a generation. Many have been bewildered by the range and intensity of the writings which constitute this movement. This book spans the breadth of the history of thought discussed by Radical Orthodoxy, tackling the accuracy of the historical narratives on which their position depends. The distinguished contributors examine the history of thought as presented by the movement, offering a series of critiques of individual Radical Orthodox 'readings' of key thinkers.

Robertson, Douglas Hedley, David Peddle, Steven Shakespeare, George Pattison, and Hugh Rayment-Pickard.
