Editorial Reviews

"If you think you know what postmodern theology is, or think youdon't know, either way these remarkable essays will change yourmind: written by Jews, Christians and atheists; indebted to Plato,the Bible and Augustine; haunted by Heidegger, Levinas, Foucaultand Derrida; dealing with jazz, the Shoah, the ecological crisis,the American prison system and many other topics; some long andpatient, others short and cryptic, all asking to be read more thanonce. You may still not know at the end but you will certainly haveseen the variety and vitality of what theologians are doing, inthese postmodern times, and the zest with which they do it."Fergus Kerr, Blackfriars <!--end-->

"Connecting theology to a variety of disciplines andintellectual traditions, this companion provides an exciting sampleof the current work of postmodern theologians. Many of the essaysare ground-breaking, as the fields of theology and religiousthought move forward into the next century. The polyphony of thevolume provides surprising moments of harmony (and discord). Thisis a valuable sequel to Ward's THEPOSTMODERN GOD, and will beuseful in the classroom." Robert Gibbs, University ofToronto

"The essays provide a lofty introduction to contemporarytheology. The introductory essay by Ward is as good as it gets onthis topic." Choice

"Among the delights of this collection are the essays that dareto reconsider some of the 'bad guys' in the official postmodernstory: thus Catherine Pickstock endeavours to rescue Plato from hisNietzschean decriers, by re-reading the Republic through theLaws to offer an account of Plato's politics as liturgicalrather than totalitarian; while Jean-Luc Marion even seeks to learnfrom the much-despised Descartes." Literature &Theology

"a...useful and exciting volume, bringing together the work ofreligious scholars and theologians across a wide spectrum, creatingspace for their current work independently from a given theme,showing them sometimes in agreement, sometimes in heated argumentwith each other." Anglican Theological Review

"A book good libraries should have." TheologicalStudies
