Product Description

What is the future of theology in the midst of rapid geopolitical and economic change?

Carl A. Raschke contends that two options from the last century - crisis theology and critical theory - do not provide the resources needed to address the current global crisis. Both of these perspectives remained distant from the messiness and unpredictability of life. Crisis theology spoke of the wholly other God, while critical theory spoke of universal reason. These ideas aren't tenable after postmodernism and the return of religion, which both call for a dialogical approach to God and the world. Rashke's new critical theology takes as its starting point the biblical claim that the Word became flesh - a flesh that includes the cultural, political and religious phenomena that shape contemporary existence.

Drawing on recent reformulations of critical theory by Slavoj Zizek, Alain Badiou and post-secularists such as Jurgen Habermas, Raschke introduces an agenda for theological thinking accessible to readers unfamiliar with this literature. In addition, the book explores the relationship between a new critical theology and current forms of political theology. Written with the passion of a manifesto, Critical Theology presents the critical and theological resources for thinking responsibly about the present global situation.
