not yet rated|write a review

"Radical theology" and "political theology" are terms that have gained a lot of currency among philosophers of religion today. In this visionary new book, Jeffrey W. Robbins explores the contemporary direction of these movements as he charts a course for their future. Robbins claims that radical theology is no longer bound by earlier thinking about God and that it must be conceived of as postsecular and postliberal. As he engages with themes of liberation, gender, and race, Robbins moves beyond the usual canon of death-of-God thinkers, thinking "against" them as much as "with" them. He presents revolutionary thinking in the face of changing theological concepts, from reformation to transformation, transcendence to immanence, messianism to metamorphosis, and from the proclamation of the death of God to the notion of God's plasticity.

Editorial Reviews

"Radical theology has famously re-emerged in this century, and Robbins is on the leading edge of this renewal. InRadical Theology, he offers resources not only for understanding this tradition, but for pushing it further, to change radical theology into what it might and should become. Read it and be transformed." -Clayton Crockett, University of Central Arkansas
