Product description


In this book Graham Ward lifts debates about Christ and culture to an unprecedented level of sophistication and at the same time decisively moves them away from a theologically liberal ambience towards one that is genuinely orthodox and Catholic, but in a new, critical and unavoidably controversial mode. He most significantly advances our ability to tackle the question of what should be the Christian stance in the face of advanced modernity. John Milbank, University of Nottingham

Graham Ward has always written insightful and arresting theology, but in this book he exposits scripture, retrieves tradition and interrogates culture with a yet more brilliant and surer touch than ever before. His concern is with the cultural mediation of the Mediator, Jesus Christ, who, in the endless displacements of his body, is not so much an identity to be known as an operation, a movement, in which to participate. This book is about the first born of creation, the one by, for and in whom we live, the culture by which we are given to be. Ward s transcorporeal Christology challenges our secular certainties and finds for us the promise of the transcendent in the textual and indeed sexual negotiations of our always encultured bodies. This is wonderfully mesmeric, bravura theology. Gerard Loughlin, University of Durham

"New book attempts to break out of the Christian insularity to produce a genuinely public theology of significant interest to postmodern philosophers and social theorists."
Modern Theology


Leading theologian Graham Ward presents a stimulating series of reflections on Christ and contemporary culture. This title takes as its starting point Niebuhr's famous volume on "Christ and Culture" published in the 1970s. It explores representations of Christ from sources as diverse as the New Testament and twentieth-century continental philosophy. It considers Christ and culture in the light of contemporary categories such as the body, gender, desire, politics and the sublime. It develops an original and imaginative Christology rooted in Scriptural exegesis and concerned with today's cultural issues. The author has been described as 'the most visionary theologian of his generation'.
