The Predicament of Postmodern Theology: Radical Orthodoxy Or Nihilist Textualism?

Front Cover
Westminster John Knox Press, Jan 1, 2001 - Religion - 198 pages

Gavin Hyman explores in depth two antithetical schools of postmodern theology--the "radical orthodoxy" of John Milbank and the "nihilist textualism" of Don Cupitt. Hyman critiques Milbank's influential project from a postmodern perspective, and then points out the major difficulties with Cupitt's approach. Finally, he explores the work of Mark C. Taylor and Michael de Certeau to articulate a "third way" that leads beyond the responses of both Cupitt and Milbank.
