This fascinating work presents the two conflicting positions within Christian thought—traditional and radical—as they developed through some of the most important periods of church history. Simut traces traditional Christian thought through Late Antiquity, Early Modernity, and Post Modernity in specific works written by Gregory Nazianzen, Jean Calvin, and Ion Bria. He analyzes Radical Christian thought as it gradually developed in Post Modernity, particularly during the twenty and twenty-first centuries through authors such as Erich Fromm, Paul Ricoeur, and Vito Mancuso.

Editorial Reviews

"A very interesting and original tour through the history of Christian thought, based on extensive use of primary and secondary sources. I have never before seen a work quite of this kind...It promises to be a book with which other scholars will want to interact and it will stimulate lines of research, particularly in the field of modern theology."--Maurice Dowling, Lecturer, Irish Baptist College; member of the Institute of Theology, Queen's University, Belfast, UK
