Overview

This book, which draws on debates in theology, philosophy, and sociological theory, is concerned with the communication of Christian ethics in the public forum of liberal, secular societies. It considers one of the fundamental problems of liberal societies: reconciling individual autonomy and community, and in response proposes a theological vision of community, and develops a particular understanding of the ways in which Christian identity is affirmed and developed in the communication of this vision. It also contributes to debates in public theology, especially on the relationship between Christianity and society.
