In this brief yet profound work, three of today's most influential and respected Christian thinkers -- Jurgen Moltmann, Nicholas Wolterstorff, and Ellen T. Charry -- explore the role of theology in our contemporary Western society.
In the main body of the book, Moltmann builds a case for the "public" nature of Christian theology and explores how expressions of faith from both the church and the academy relate to significant aspects of modernity. The responses by Wolterstorff and Charry provide a fascinating dialogue with Moltmann's views that will also challenge readers to consider more deeply the relationship between Christianity and culture. This volume is timely reading for Christians seeking to confront today's world.
