Synopsis
The development of theology in recent times has been marked not only by diversity but also by division. With the aim of interpreting new information from philosophy and the sciences into a deeper understanding of the world and society, the many theological schools pursued independent agendas with the net effect of a loss of coherence. It is the author's contention that theological schools have drifted so far apart that what seems false and dangerous to one seems almost self-evident to another and that theologians lack a common language, common goals and norms. In this book the author explores the possibility for greater consensus between the differing theological approaches and illustrates how a "post-critical" theology can draw on the riches of scripture and tradition as it reflects on the faith of the Church in new contexts.
