Editorial Reviews


This important book is a gift to those who have sensed the potential of Jürgen Habermas's 'communicative ethics' for Christian thought. Hak Joon Lee explores the limitations of Habermas's theory, especially with its seemingly out-of-hand dismissal of religious insights … [and] makes a persuasive case for an enriched 'Habermasianism'. . . incorporated into a larger framework that takes with utmost seriousness theological perspectives on covenant and the Trinity. (Richard J. Mouw, Fuller Theological Seminary)

Hak Joon Lee argues that Habermas's insights could help traditional covenantal theology to embrace the procedural theory of justice…[and in] turn could help the other side to appreciate the religious grounding and formative theological symbolic potentials so often neglected in modern philosophical and ethical thought. Since Habermas has recently begun to include religious traditions more thoroughly than before, the book comes at the right time and brings its own voice into the newly emerging discourse... (Dr. Michael Welker, Heidelberg University)

Dr. Lee is one of the intellectual leaders among that new generation of outstanding younger scholars who are taking up questions of 'Public Theology'. . . . [Covenant and Communication offers] a genuine communicative ethic that is more profound than the anti-cosmopolitan and anti-theological philosophers of our day or the theological dogmatists who would ignore philosophy and social theory. Altogether, this is a major intellectual and faithful achievement. (Max L. Stackhouse, from the Foreword, Rimmer & Ruth DeVries Professor of Reformed Theology and Public Life, Princeton Theological Seminary)

From the Back Cover

In dialogue with Jurgen Habermas's communicative ethics, Covenant and Communication constructively explores a covenantal-communicative model of Christian ethics. Author Hak Joon Lee analyzes themes of freedom, equality, and reciprocity in Habermas's theory of communication from the perspective of the Reformed Christian doctrines of covenant and the Trinity.
