Product Description

An Eerdmans Reader in Contemporary Political Theology gathers some of the most significant and influential writings in political theology from the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. Given that the locus of Christianity is undeniably shifting to the global South, this volume uniquely integrates key voices from Africa, Asia, and Latin America with central texts from Europe and North America on such major subjects as church and state, gender and race, and Christendom and postcolonialism.Carefully selected, thematically arranged, and expertly introduced, these forty-nine essential readings constitute an ideal primary-source introduction to contemporary political theology--a profoundly relevant resource for globally engaged citizens, students, and scholars.

    Editorial Reviews

    Religious Studies Review
    "Expertly designed for classroom use, this volume offers a splendid overview of contemporary political theology. . . . For a course on political theology or as an introduction to the current state of the field, there is no finer work than this one."
     
    Journal of Church and State
    "A gift to professors because the editors have assembled such a good collection of essays in a single volume. . . . The combination of classic essays and the inclusion of key voices from the Global south make this book useful as a reader for classes both at the undergraduate and graduate levels."
     
    Regent’s Reviews
    "A worthwhile book. . . . A very useful resource."
     
    Journal of Reformed Theology
    "The focus is contemporary rather than historical, it is comprehensive rather than specialized, but most of all, it is the occasion to get acquainted with political theology as a broad movement which is not confined to Europe and North America. All in all, then, it certainly deserves its place in my shelf — but most of all in the classroom."
