about

This work offers a theological response to the Marxist critique of ideology, a critique that suggests that Christianity is reactionary--that Christianity, in other words, concentrates on the individual, and cannot make a contribution to changing society. Peter Scott takes this criticism seriously, and offers a constructive response, stressing with feminist and liberation theologies the contextual nature of theology. Central to his argument are interpretations of resurrection as social and how God might be present to society.
