Series: Blackwell Manifestos

Publisher's Description

This powerful manifesto outlines a vision called theological humanism based on the idea that that the integrity of life provides a way to articulate the meaning of religion for the human future.
  • Explores a profound quest to understand the meaning and responsibility of our shared and yet divided humanity amidst the uncertainty of modern society
  • Articulates the idea that human beings are mixed creatures striving for integrity not only trying to conform to God's will
  • Sets forth a dynamic and robust vision of human life beyond the divisions that haunt the humanities, social sciences, theology, and religious studies

Editorial Reviews

"There is no doubt this is a great book. . . the place to finish this review is with admiration and respect. This book will shape key debates for many years to come. It is a remarkably clear statement of a program and vision, which stresses integrity, reason, and generosity. For this service to the church and the academy, we should be deeply grateful." (Conversations in Religion and Theology, November 2010)

"Religion and the Human Future provides an excellent, well thought-out and well documented analysis of the current dilemma facing religions and religious people: the human dangers and inadequacies of hypertheism, with its exaggerated response to the challenge of modernity and over humanization, with its overly unreflective veneration for modernity." (Ethical Perspectives, July 2010)"This text sounds a clarion call to change the debate about the role of religion in human life. ... With limited endnotes and an engaging style, this carefully argued text mostly succeeds in its attempt to be accessible to a wider audience that could include upperlevel undergraduates." (Religious Studies Review, September 2009)
