Editorial Reviews


"There is no doubt this is a great book. . . the place to finish this review is with admiration and respect. This book will shape key debates for many years to come. It is a remarkably clear statement of a program and vision, which stresses integrity, reason, and generosity. For this service to the church and the academy, we should be deeply grateful." (Conversations in Religion and Theology, November 2010)

"Religion and the Human Future provides an excellent, well thought-out and well documented analysis of the current dilemma facing religions and religious people: the human dangers and inadequacies of hypertheism, with its exaggerated response to the challenge of modernity and over humanization, with its overly unreflective veneration for modernity." (Ethical Perspectives, July 2010)"This text sounds a clarion call to change the debate about the role of religion in human life. ... With limited endnotes and an engaging style, this carefully argued text mostly succeeds in its attempt to be accessible to a wider audience that could include upperlevel undergraduates." (Religious Studies Review, September 2009)


"This is a very impressive book which works its way through a wide range of serious issues with a poise and balance that is rare in academic books. It is well informed and wise, weighing in on contentious intellectual problems without being judgmental and sectarian and is unique in both acknowledging and articulating the inevitable ambiguity of religion."
Dale Wright, Occidental College, CA

"At a time when discourse about religion seems polarised between fideistic theism and reductive secularism, Klemm and Schweiker provide an imaginative "third way," in the form of a robust theological humanism that draws on and transforms the rich resources of theological and humanist traditions. This is an indispensable book that takes us beyond the stalemates of the present into a truly hopeful future grounded in human responsibility for the integrity of life."
Joseph Prabhu, California State University, Los Angeles

"This essay on Theological Humanism is a welcome and powerful reminder that the primary task of theology is to explore the truth about divine-human relationship - and not to justify the ends and means of particular religious (or secular) institutions or 'communities'. Theological Humanism is committed to critical and self-critical thinking about the potential of human beings to mature in God's universe where the integrity of all life is respected. This manifesto offers a new orientation for theology today."
Werner G. Jeanrond, University of Glasgow
