The Theological and The Political is strikingly original, theoretically robust, ethically sensitive, and politically resonant in a moment when so many forces are working to erode the possibilities of human flourishing. Mark L. Taylor has effected nothing less than a wholesale transformation of the discourse of theology--in deep solidarity with those who struggle with courage and dignity for a more righteous world.
--Corey D.B. Walker, Associate Professor of African Studies, Brown University
Intriguing , well-researched, Mark Taylor's new project is also challenging. He introduces new catagories to find a way beyond the binaries of transcendence and immanence in the search for 'the theological' in the political.
--Peter C. Hodgson, Professor of Theology Emeritus, Divinity School, Vanderbilt University

A must-read for all concerned with the survival of humankind in the contemporary predicament of our planet.
