Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This collection of essays by 12 authors sets out to do no less than reinvent theology according to its traditional revelations and insights in light of--and occasionally despite--current movements in humanism and postmodernism. While the reliance on a firm knowledge of Nietzsche, Heidegger, Hegel, and others may make the essays quite daunting to nonacademic readers, they are valuable, surprising, and stimulating. Highly recommended for collections in religious studies.
