Publisher's Description

Traditional Christian theology has generally treated desire as a dark and negative force intimately related to sin — something to be restricted and repressed, closeted and controlled. But, according to LeRon Shults and Jan-Olav Henriksen’s Saving Desire, we see only part of the picture if we do not also perceive that desire can be a powerful force for great good.

Grounding their work firmly in the experiential realm of human life, the eight eminent theologians contributing to this volume celebrate together the positivity, the sociality, and the physicality of saving desire — that is, humankind’s innate desire not only for the “good life” but also, more vitally, for the life-transforming goodness of God.

Editorial Reviews

Reviews in Religion & Theology
"The book is well worth reading by all who are concerned with how theology speaks to the desires of human life."
                 
Modern Believing
"A valuable addition to the field. . . . It is clear, thoughtful and impressively well-integrated. . . . The range of conversation partners is impressive, and the essays are consistently strong in their endorsement of incarnation as a divine as well as a human good."
