Overview

At one time in the twentieth century, debates about "theology of culture" brought together an otherwise diverse group of theologians: Paul Tillich, Richard Kroner, H.

Jonathan Wilson here retrieves the important and influential work of Julian Hartt and argues from him that we must learn that theology that is faithful to the Gospel of Jesus Christ is "theology as cultural critique."
