Format: Paperback
This book is very easy to read. It assumes almost no background of Kant's philosophy. The author presents her arguments clearly, she always starts with common assumptions about Kant, and then she presents her rebuttals point by point. She starts by analyzing Kant's 3 Critiques (of Pure, Practical Reason and of Judgement), then concludes that yes Kant is a theologian. She then moves on to explain why she thinks Kant is a 'Closet' theologian, based on Kant's writings on the relationship between Philosophy and Theology, or Philosophical and Biblical Theology. She then compares and contrasts Kant to Luther and Erasmus on the doctrines of revelation, grace, freedom, salvation and kingdom of God. She finally writes about Kant's theology, and how it is similar, yet different from Christian Theology. It is because Kant tries to propose a universal religion that is purely rational and philosophical, thus noncontextal and subjective. It's a good intro book to read on Kant's Moral Theology.
