Beschreibung:

What is the primary purpose of Christian theology? What governs its deliberations and sets the standards by which its claims are evaluated? In Politics of the Theological, Barry Harvey argues that politics - the art and science of human life in community - provides the essential framework for answering these foundational questions. According to Harvey, the church is the community that models a new type of society to the world, ordered around the habits and relations of Christ. Theological inquiry helps the church to foster relationships that embody the divine offer of new life and challenge the dehumanizing practices of modern culture. The realization of this new society in the Christian community becomes for all creation the historical sign of God's peaceable kingdom.
