Heather Meacock, in An Anthropological Approach to Theology, has compiled an argument, based upon the pluralist beliefs of Professor John Hick, for the revision of traditional Christianity. Hick's pluralist understanding of the theology of religions is influenced by the philosophy of Kant, and his theories about society's moral awareness. Meacock methodically explicates Hick's views while refuting his critics. She claims that some Christian doctrines, such as the Incarnation, lose meaning when interpreted literally, and that Christianity itself must begin to change its self perception to that of one among many world religions. This book will interest students of religion, philosophy, as well as anthropologists interested in religion.
