The remaining chapters, comprising the second half of the book, were far less relevant to his topic, though not without merit. He analyzes the proper relationship between the church and politics, the influence of changing ideas of the self have altered the cultural affinity for Buddhism and Christianity's place in understanding the self, and one additional topic that was, sadly, forgettable.
As is not surprising, Pannenberg is highly thoughtful, analytical, and articulate, though much more heady and intellectual than is really compatible with contemporary spirituality. He makes some exceedingly astute observations and critiques in the first and last chapters, but what happens in between was too philosophical and abstract for my taste.
