Series: Challenges in Contemporary Theology

Publisher's Description

Recent decades have seen major shifts in our understanding of Christian identity. This timely book explores contemporary theological theory in asking what makes a Christian in the twenty-first century.

  • Engages with developments in contemporary theological thought, assessing the work of leading figures Rowan Williams, John Milbank, and Kathryn Tanner
  • Challenges accepted ideas of Christian identity by revealing largely unexplored perspectives on how sin affects its formation
  • Contributes to vexed debates about Christian identity at a time when Christianity is expanding in some regions, yet in decline in many parts of the Western world

Editorial Reviews

“This is an insightful work of theology, one that clearly demonstrates the ways in which classical Christian teachings can renew Christian practice.”  (Religious Studies Review, 1 December 2013)

“This is a substantial work that explores a considerable gap in the literature of discipleship, conversing as it does with three of the most significant contemporary theologians (unlike much literature on discipleship which ignores theology altogether. . . Academic libraries will want this book, and those interested in a way of integrating systematics and practical theology, but whether they can afford to do so is another matter (25 pence per page seems rather expensive to me, even if this hardback binding is as robust as any.) It has caused me to return to Milbank and Williams, and to explore Tanner afresh, but more significantly, to read Gregory. For that alone I am grateful to Volpe.”  (Regent's Reviews, 1 October 2013)
