9780567088925: Public Theology for the 21st Century

The book is a unique stocktaking, by a leading international group of theologians, social scientists and other scholars, on issues facing public theology at the beginning of the 21st century. It combines retrospect and prospect, in that it reflects on the issues and approaches that have characterized public theology in the 20th century, especially its latter half, and attempts to anticipate those which will or should come to the fore in the 21st century, seeking to discern continuities and changes. Three opening chapters deal with the overall theme of public or political theology, with Jurgen Moltmann giving a critical historical account from the Second World War onwards, Raymond Plant relating such theology to cultural pluralism, and Andrew Morton illustrating it from the work of Duncan Forrester. These are followed by pairs of contributions relating public theology to more specific topicsr: History; Technology and Creation; Globalization; Spirituality; Punishment and Forgiveness; Medical Ethics; Tolerance and Human Rights; Social Exclusion and Equality.

Review:

'...an impressive and significant book...a surprisingly comprehensive overview of the entire field of "public theology", not only in the British context, but with contributions and insights from around the world...important...creative' (John Drane Church Times)

"This remarkablecollection of twenty-four essays demonstrates that Protestant liberationtheology is not dead, but has only been sleeping...Edinburgh's Centre of Theologyand Public Issues offers a thesis that deserves attention. Instead ofpresenting the local and the global as two opposing poles, and instead ofassisting the local simply the task of resisting the global, the Centre recommendsthat local societies enter into dialogue with the global, searching forelements in it that will allow local communities to resist, to survive, and toflourish... The thesis, in each place, the local and the global are entering intoa new relationship is this volume's original contribution."- Gregory Baum, Theology Today, January 2006 (Theology Today)

Descrizione libro Bloomsbury Publishing PLC, United Kingdom, 2004. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. .a very significant moment in the history of public theology over the past fifty years or so, taking stock of and renewing a sense of social vision in theology Raymond Plant, King s College, London and the House of Lords This major book is a unique stocktaking of the issues facing public theology at the beginning of the 21st century, combining retrospect and prospect. The contributors are leading Christian theologians and social theorists from Europe, North and South America, Africa and Asia. Part one surveys the legacy of the 20th century and asks what should be carried over into the third millennium. There are authoritative essays on political and public theology in Germany, Argentina, South Africa and Britain. In part two, the contested legacy of modernity itself is considered, revisiting such ideas as freedom, toleration, human rights, pluralism, environmental stewardship and God in history. Part three addresses globalization, offering a range of critical interpretations of this key concept for public theology in the 21st century. The final part offers theological and ethical insight into some of the most pressing public issues of the new century - medical ethics, punishment and forgiveness, inequality, social exclusion and political participation. Throughout, the authors engage with the public and theological concerns that have shaped the life and work of Duncan B. Forrester, to whom this book is dedicated. Public Theology for the 21st Century is a landmark publication for all those concerned about theology s contribution to public debate in the churches, the academy and society. William F. Storrar is Professor of Christian Ethics and Practical Theology, and Director of the Centre for Theology and Public Issues, University of Edinburgh. Andrew R. Morton is an Honorary Fellow in the School of Divinity, and a former Associate Director of the Centre for Theology and Public Issues, University of Edinburgh.
