Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
John R. Bowlin
-- Princeton Theological Seminary
"Max Stackhouse is one of the central figures in Christian social ethics over the last half-century, and this volume shows us why. Always smart, sometimes provocative, and ever faithful -- like Max himself -- these essays of his identify the tasks and trajectories of public theology for the next half-century."

Nico Koopman
-- Stellenbosch University
"Stackhouse can rightly be called one of the fathers of public theology. This collection of his most important writings makes his work more accessible to audiences in various countries, churches, and contexts all over the globe. A helpful guide for churches and individual Christians who strive to define their public calling in the context of democracies with their complex public spheres and challenges."

Rudolf von Sinner
-- Faculdades EST, S�o Leopoldo, Brazil
"This is a timely and indispensable primer of public theology. Stackhouse is to be commended for giving in neither to secularists who exclude religion from the public sphere, nor to idealist liberals, nor to bibliolatrous fundamentalists, nor to sectarians who can only live in conflict with the world. . . . Much-needed, thought-provoking reading."
