"this is a welcome addition to the growing body of literature on the relationship between Christian theology and what, in his introduction, Vanhoozer helpfully calls the 'postmodern condition'" - Philip D. Kenneson, Milligan College
Theolo gians have responded in many different ways to the challenges posed by theories of postmodernity. In this introductory guide to a complex area, editor Kevin J. Vanhoozer addresses the issue head on in a lively survey of what 'talk about God' might mean in a postmodern age. The book then offers examples of different types of contemporary theology in relation to postmodernity, and examines the key Christian doctrines in postmodern perspective. Leading theologians contribute to this clear and informative Companion, which no student of theology should be without.
