Overview

Outlining the four fundamental concerns of the study of theology—representation, history, ethics and transcendence—this book examines each of these concerns in light of contemporary critical theory. Graham Ward explores the theological themes of the most prominent theorists, outlining their implications for the future of theology and proposing new directions for the future of theological study within a cosmos re-enchanted by postmodernism.

Booknews
Ward (contextual theology and ethics, University of Manchester) focuses on fundamental disciplines and concepts involved in the study of theology and points out ways in which contemporary critical theory challenges them. He explores theological themes of prominent theorists, outlining the implications of their thinking for the future of theology. He proposes new directions within which theology may move in the cultural context of post-modernity. This second edition takes into account recent work by theorists. Annotation c.
