Overview

Consolidating material he has used for undergraduate courses in theology and culture, Gorringe (U. of Exeter) seeks to understand cultural materialism and socialism within a Christian theological perspective. He begins with culture, looking at the long revolution, and cultural imperialism, and other aspects. Then he discusses power from such perspectives as hegemony and the task of the church, and liberation theology and cultural politics. His final section, on mission, considers imperialism at prayer, translation and inculturation, universal humanity and the clash of civilizations, and the gospel in a multicultural society.
