Product Description

These essays provide a new way of envisioning the relationship between spirituality and social embodiment. Some authors provide re-readings of pre-modern theology, others address our circumstances more directly, but all seek ways to place our spiritualities and politics before the God who desires to redeem us, body and soul.

Publisher's Description

"Spirituality" often takes us out of the public world to a more inward (so-called "mystical") space, while "politics" calls us beyond ourselves to the more material realities of social embodiment.

Editorial Reviews

"Students of theology will welcome this study and enjoy the varied presentations and I believe they will return to them, a pleasure made all the more attractive by the index." Anthony Lovegrove, Haslemere

"This book of essays is a selection of writings from some of todays most thoughtful theologians. The theme of the book is an attempt to engage with both the realm of the mystical and that of the material utilising traditional reasources in creative ways. All of the essays are intriguing and cover a wide range of topics.....they all go a long way in contributing valuable arguments to the current debates surrounding the relevance and message the chuch has to offer the larger community.
