About the Authors
  • The Critique of Theological Reason describes the nature and prospects of Christian theology in the postmodern era. It neither takes a monolithic view of postmodernism, nor does it believe that postmodernism monopolizes all that rings most true in contemporary thought. Instead, it takes the best of modern scientific theory about the nature and end of the universe, the best of modern British philosophy of art and morality, and the best of contemporary Christian theology, and outlines a philosophically viable theology for the thoroughly evolutionary world we occupy today.

    • Provides a deeper understanding of postmodernism, based upon an account of its philosophical ancestry in the modern era
    • Makes a critical and creative use of the more theoretical or 'philosophical' views of the scientists in physics and psychology
    • Offers a persuasive account of the most influential and promising movements in modern Christian theology

    "Insightful, relevant, penetrating, and at times refreshingly witty, The Critique of Theological Reason is an availing addition to any theological repertoire." - Ashland Theological Journal, Jacob Louis Waldenmaier
