Product Description

This book is about holiness, a moral and theological subject of enormous signifigance in the Bible, the Judeo-Christian tradition, the world religions generally and in the study of religion itself. Stephen Barton has invited experts from a wide range of theological and related disciplines to reflect on holiness. The contributions are inter-denominational and, in several cases, inter-religious. Their comprehensive range and interdisciplinary style make then an important resource for students and scholars in theology, church history, ethics and religious studies.

Publisher's Description

Stephen Barton has commissioned social scientists, philosophers of religion, feminists, biblical scholars, historians, moral theologians and systematic theologians - international experts from a wide range of theological and related disciplines - to reflect on "holiness."The book is divided into four parts: the idea of holiness, holiness and scripture, holiness and Christian tradition, and holiness and contemporary issues. The contributions are inter-denominational and inter-religious. There is nothing comparable on "holiness" available at present, so this collection fills a significant gap in the literature. Its comprehensive range and its interdisciplinary style will make it an important resource for students and scholars in theology, church history, ethics and religious studies.
