Product description

Review

'The book's great strength lies in its rehabilitation of religious discourse as a legitimate challenge to 'the secular logics of Western global capitalism'. So its focus is 'the negotiation between Christian living and thinking and the contemporary world'.' Church Times

'… erudite and challenging … highly commended. It is a well-researched, discerning and insightful piece of work. … any 'student' with a heart for apologetics and cultural transformation will find it most illuminating.' Expository Times

'Graham Ward is one of the best known representatives of Radical Orthodoxy … [provides] a more general model for understanding how cultures change, especially whether and how religious practice can shape the cultural transformation. … well written, demonstrating Ward's admirable mastery of the theories from various fields.' Ars Disputandi

' … this is a book about the essential criteria for theological 'credibility' in general … here is a project which I think certainly demands to be taken very seriously indeed.' Theology

Book Description

What is the relationship between Christian theology - as practised in liturgies, Bible readings, academic research, doctrinal commissions - and what goes on in culture more generally? Graham Ward offers a new approach to interpretation as a cultural activity and examines how the practices of theology might influence cultural transformation.
