Product Description

Product Description

<![CDATA[In Christ and Reconciliation Veli-Matti Kärkkäinen develops a constructive Christology and theology of salvation in dialogue with the best of Christian tradition, with contemporary theology in its global and contextual diversity, and with other major living faiths.

Kärkkäinen's Constructive Christian Theology for the Pluralistic World is a five-volume project that aims to develop a new approach to and method of doing Christian theology in our pluralistic world at the beginning of the third millennium. Topics such as diversity, inclusivity, violence, power, cultural hybridity, and justice are part of the constructive theological discussion along with classical topics such as the messianic consciousness, incarnation, atonement, and the person of Christ.

With the metaphor of hospitality serving as the framework for his discussion, Kärkkäinen engages Judaism, Islam, Buddhism, and Hinduism in sympathetic and critical mutual dialogue while remaining robustly Christian in his convictions. Never before has a full-scale doctrinal theology been attempted in such a wide and deep dialogical mode.]]>

5.0 out of 5 stars Karkkainen begins with reconciliation 5 Dec 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Karkkainen's theology books are readable and accessible, and Christ and Reconciliation follows in that tradition. If you have not read Karkkainen before, this new volume, the first in his systematic theology project, is a good place to start.

4.0 out of 5 stars A well explored theology text grounded in the real world 20 Feb 2014
By Marcus Privitt - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Karkkainen healthily anticipates the future of global Christianity. Each topic explored goes deep enough to satisfy the theology for which the book calls, but also spreads wide enough to touch on practicalities and equal-grounded dialogues with other faiths and belief systems.

I had to read the book for class, but I would not be shocked if I picked up book two in the five part series at some point in the future!
