"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
