Product Description

This fourth addition to the Church and Postmodern Culture series, written by internationally acclaimed theologian Graham Ward, examines the political side of postmodernism to better describe the characteristics of a faithful, political discipleship. In two sections, Ward provides an accessible guide to contemporary postmodernism with its wide-ranging implications. He then elaborates on a discipleship informed by a faith which seeks understanding - something he describes as "the substance of the church's political life." The Politics of Discipleship is an engaging account of the inherently political nature of postmodernity infused Ward's elaboration on what it means to live our Christian faith within this setting.

Publisher's Description

Internationally acclaimed theologian Graham Ward is well known for his thoughtful engagement with postmodernism. This volume, the fourth in The Church and Postmodern Culture series, offers an engaging look at the political nature of the postmodern world.

In the first section, "The World," Ward considers "the signs of the times" and the political nature of contemporary postmodernism. It is imperative, he suggests, that the church understand the world to be able to address it thoughtfully. In the second section, "The Church," he turns to practical application, examining what faithful discipleship looks like within this political context. Clergy and those interested in the emerging church will find this work particularly thought provoking.

Author Bio

Graham Ward (PhD, University of Cambridge) is Regius Professor of Divinity and canon of Christ Church Cathedral at the University of Oxford. He is a prolific author and editor, whose works include Cities of God, True Religion, and The Blackwell Companion to Postmodern Theology.

Library Journal

A kind of conclusion to his Cities of God and Cultural Transformation and Religious Practice, Ward (contextual theology & ethics, Univ. of Manchester) here attempts to reconcile the challenges of a postmodern world with the call to discipleship. First, this rich but densely argued book addresses the postmodern nature and definition of democracy, global culture, and religious practice. The second portion asks how contemporary thinking Christians are to deal with the postmodern world in which they live. Ward's answer seems to be, somewhat shockingly, a renewed embrace of theocracy. VERDICT While this work is apt to be heavy going for many readers, Ward's provocative notions call for a wide readership. In the end, however, his best audience will be seasoned scholars.
