Front Cover
Palgrave Macmillan UK, Feb 12, 2000 - History - 203 pages
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.
