A Modern Introduction to Theology: New Questions for Old by Philip Kennedy PDF

By Philip Kennedy

Philip Kennedy right here deals the 1st booklet that any pupil - without or with spiritual convictions - can profitably use to get fast to grips with the necessities of the Christian faith: its heritage and its key thinkers, its successes and its mess ups. so much present undergraduate textbooks of theology commence from basically conventional positions at the Bible, doctrine, authority, interpretation, and God. What makes Philip Kennedy's e-book either singularly vital and uniquely varied is that it has a very new starting-point. the writer contends that conventional Christian theology needs to widely overhaul a lot of its theses as a result of a mess of recent social, historic and highbrow revolutions. supplying a grand historic sweep of the genesis of the fashionable age, and writing with panache and a magisterial clutch of the appropriate debates, conflicts and controversies, a latest advent to Theology strikes a drained and more and more incoherent self-discipline in certainly clean and intriguing instructions, and should be welcomed via scholars and readers of the subject.
