Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this valuable entrie to the cutting edge of theology today, veteran journalist Rupert Shortt interviews many of its most outstanding thinkers.

Shortt introduces readers to many of the figures who have provoked the recent renaissance in theology — returning to patristic and medieval sources, reviving Trinitarian teaching, wrestling with gender issues, and speaking to the political dilemmas of our day. These thinkers speak honestly both about their advocacy for God in the academy and about their personal experiences of faith. They also speak honestly about their disagreements over what healthy theology should look like.

At a time of sharp conflict between secularists and religious conservatives the thinkers featured in God's Advocates neither water down Christian belief nor seal it off from the wider world, instead offering plausible, passionate — even passionately differing — accounts of Christian belief.

Features Conversations with:

Tina Beattie, David Burrell, J. Kameron Carter, Sarah Coakley, Stanley Hauerwas, Christopher Insole, Jean-Luc Marion, David Martin, John Milbank, Joan Lockwood O'Donovan, Oliver O'Donovan, Simon Oliver, Alvin Plantinga, Christoph Schwvbel, Janet Martin Soskice, Miroslav Volf, Samuel Wells, Rowan Williams

Synopsis:

Theology has shown a remarkable recovery of nerve over the last quarter-century. What is happening at the cutting edge of Christian thought, and why does it matter? In this valuable entree to recent theology, religion journalist Rupert Shortt offers a rich and accessible survey of the best of contemporary Christian thought from around the English-speaking world and beyond.<P>Shorttbs lively interviews introduce readers to eighteen respected Christian thinkers who have contributed to the recent renaissance in theology. In the opening chapter Rowan Williams addresses some of the thorniest objections to religious belief. Other participants discuss key themes in the philosophy of religion, the current resurgence of systematic theology, new developments in feminist and black theologies, Christian-Muslim dialogue, and faith-based approaches to ethics and politics. Spanning a large part of the theological spectrum, the participants also speak honestly about their personal experiences of faith and share a confidence that the Christian tradition can creatively answer the intellectual challenges of the day.
