In this insightful book, Paul Fletcher provides a critical overview of the status of political theology today, as well as a thorough refutation of the social model of the Trinity. Written with the clarity that derives from long experience of teaching on this subject, Fletcher provides a most engaging suggestion for the future of political theology. Philip Goodchild, Head of Theology and Religious Studies, Nottingham University Paul Fletcher was one of Britain's most acute and culturally engaged theologians, a passionate interrogator of theology, philosophy and critical theory. In this book, his passion and wonderfully informed, devastating incision, lives on, as it is brought to bear on social models of the Trinity, in particular that of Jurgen Moltmann. Gerard Loughlin, Professor of Theology, Durham University 'This is an extraordinary book which challenges one of the most commonly-held assumptions of modern doctrine, that somehow the relationships between the persons of the Trinity have some relevance for how we organise our social relationships in politics and the church.'
