Product Description


'The risk he takes, the range of problems he engages, the imaginative power of his mind, the sheer energy that pulses through these essays make this book essential for anyone who would understand the phenomenon - the gift - that bears the name of John Milbank.' (Stanley Hauerwas, Duke University)

'This is a marvellous collection of well-organized essays by perhaps the most thought-provoking theologian of the moment. They will confirm John Milbank's reputation as one of the most accomplished and singular of theologians currently writing.' (William Desmond Katholieke Universiteit, Leuven)

' These essays, published over thirty years and gathered in this important new book, demonstrate the consistent acuity and imaginative power of John Milbank's politico-theological vision.' (Michael Northcott University of Edinburgh) --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

About the Author

John Milbank is Research Professor of Religion, Ethics, and Politics, and Director of the Centre of Theology and Philosophy, at the University of Nottingham, England. He is the author of numerous works, including Theology and Social Theory, The Suspended Middle, and, with Slavoj Zizek, The Monstrosity of Christ: Paradox versus Dialectics (forthcoming 2009).

4.0 out of 5 stars Challenging but worth it. 12 Dec. 2013
By Boyd Holliday - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The Future of Love is a collection of essays by one of the leaders of the "Radical Orthodoxy" movement. RO is not a new theology, but rather a new mode or interaction between theology and the contemporary world. In theological matters it is remarkably "orthodox" which will anger both atheists and "liberal" Christians. In social and political matters it is remarkably "radical" meaning that it takes positions that will anger conservatives of all kinds, both political and religious. When you make almost everybody mad, you must be on to something right.
The author assumes you know contemporary theology and philosophy before you read any of the essays, so readers should be aware of this. Also, it would be best to read some of his other books first, or Jame A. K. Smith's Introducing Radical Orthodoxy. That said, Milbank is brilliant and anyone interested in his perspective would enjoy this collection of essays.
