Beschreibung

Leading theologian Graham Ward presents a stimulating series of reflections on Christ and contemporary culture.

  • Takes as its starting point Niebuhr's famous volume on 'Christ and Culture' published in the 1970s
  • Explores representations of Christ from sources as diverse as the New Testament and twentieth-century continental philosophy
  • Considers Christ and culture in the light of contemporary categories such as the body, gender, desire, politics and the sublime
  • Develops an original and imaginative Christology rooted in Scriptural exegesis and concerned with today's cultural issues
  • The author has been described as 'the most visionary theologian of his generation'.


Graham Ward is Professor of Contextual Theology and Ethics at the University of Manchester. His previous books include Barth, Derrida and the Language of Theology (1995), Theology and Contemporary Critical Theory (1996), The Postmodern God (Blackwell, 1997), Radical Orthodoxy (1998), The Certeau Reader (Blackwell, 1999), Cities of God (2000), The Blackwell Companion to Postmodern Theology (Blackwell, 2001), True Religion (Blackwell, 2002) and Cultural Transformation and Religious Practice (2004).

Klappentext
This work by Graham Ward, one of the most visionary theologians of his generation, contains nine interrelated studies of representations of Christ. Drawn from sources as diverse as the New Testament and twentieth-century continental philosophy, Ward develops his own original incarnational theology. From his exploration of contemporary categories such as the body, gender, desire, politics and the sublime, a Christology emerges that is both rooted in Scriptural exegesis and concerned with today's cultural issues; and a vision appears of the possibilities for living orientated towards the Good, the True, the Beautiful and the Just.
