Beschreibung

This imaginative study rethinks the nature of theology and its role in universities.The author sketches out a fascinating project using examples from US and UK institutions, whereby theology becomes a transformative force within universities.Imagines what a Christian university, in which all disciplines have been theologized, would look like.Feeds into discussions about the religious identity of denominationally-linked colleges and universities.Forms part of a wider attempt to imagine a vital public role for theology that enables it to serve both the Church and the wider community.

Pressestimmen

"D'Costa sets out his argument with clarity and skill ... An important book, relevant not only for discussions about the future of theology in the academy but of religion in public life." (Theology) "This is an important book and I hope augurs more interaction between out different Christian educational traditions." (The Gospel and Our Culture) "A well argued book ... D'Costa has an invaluable argument on the key place of theology within the life of a faith. (Anvil) "A stimulating read ... Contains absorbing views on a wide range of current issues such as identity, secularization, ethics and politics ... A timely and relevant challenge for those involved with Church or university theology in today's religiously volatile world." (International Journal of Public Theology)
