The God of Greatest Hospitality


Andrew Shanks, Canon Emeritus, Manchester Cathedral, UK
In his new book, Andrew Shanks offers a fresh perspective for
his interpretation of truth-as-openness and its application
to current controversies in the Church of England. This
perspective is based on Hegels distinction between two modes
of divine revelation, that of violence, in which the divine will
imposes itself directly and forcefully on human activity, and
that of the cunning of reason, whereby Gods will is mediated
through the historical process as a whole, which is in itself
ambiguous and requires constant discernment on the part of
the interpreter. Shanks makes fruitful and creative use of this
distinction in a book that deserves a wide readership in the
Anglican community and beyond.
Peter C. Hodgson, Vanderbilt University, USA
This book is not simply an interpretation of Hegel. Rather, it
belongs to an attempt, so far as possible, to re-do for today
something comparable to what Hegel did for his day. Divine
revelation is on-going: never before has any generation
been as well positioned as we are now, potentially to
comprehend the deepest truth of the gospel. This book
works towards a systematic understanding of the history of
Christian truth, essentially as an ever-expanding medium
for the authentic divine spirit of openness.

Anishinaabe Ways of Knowing and Being delivers fresh


perspective and deep thought about the first people of the
Great Lakes. Full of insight, its an essential reference to the
historical and contemporary experience of the Anishinaabe.
Historians, anthropologists and everyday citizens will find
a wealth of knowledge here. And the Anishinaabe people
themselves will find a useful tool to help them retrace their
roots, understand their ancestors, and chart a path forward.
Anton Treuer, Bemidji State University, USA
Very few studies have examined the worldview of the
Anishinaabeg from within the culture itself and none have
explored the Anishinaabe worldview in relation to their
efforts to maintain their culture in the present-day world.
Focusing mainly on the Minnesota Anishinaabeg, Gross
explores how their worldview works to create a holistic
way of living, which the Anishinaabeg call the Good Life.
However, as Gross also argues, the Anishinaabeg saw the
end of their world early in the 20th century and experienced
what he calls postapocalypse stress syndrome.

Philosophy of Religion

SERIES

www.ashgate.com/intensities

INTENSITIES: CONTEMPORARY CONTINENTAL


PHILOSOPHY OF RELIGION
Series Editors: Patrice Haynes and Steven Shakespeare, both at Liverpool Hope University, UK
This series sits at the forefront of contemporary developments in continental philosophy of religion, engaging
particularly with radical reinterpretations and applications of the continental canon from Kant to Derrida and beyond
but also with significant departures from that tradition. A key area of focus is the emergence of new realist and
materialist schools of thought whose potential contribution to philosophy of religion is at an early stage. Rooted in
a vibrant tradition of thinking about religion, whilst positioning itself at the cutting edge of emerging agendas, this
series has a clear focus on continental and post-continental philosophy of religion and complements Ashgates British
Society for Philosophy of Religion series with its more analytic approach.

Heidegger on Death

Praying to a French God

A Critical Theological Essay

The Theology of Jean-Yves Lacoste

George Pattison, University of Glasgow, UK

Kenneth Jason Wardley, University of Edinburgh, UK

This book examines the question of death in the light of


Heideggers paradigmatic discussion in Being and Time.
Pattison reveals where and how Heidegger and theology
part ways but also how Heidegger can helpfully challenge
theology to rethink one of its own fundamental questions:
human beings relation to their death and the meaning of
death in their religious lives.

This book provides an excellent discussion of Jean-Yves


Lacostes important contribution to a critical phenomenology
of religion and of the great French thinkers pertinent and
moving insights into the transformative nature of prayer and
the sacraments.

A Philosophy of Christian Materialism


Entangled Fidelities and the Public Good
Christopher Baker, William Temple Foundation and University
of Chester, UK, Thomas A. James, Covenant Presbyterian
Church, USA and John Reader, Ironstone Benefice,
Diocese of Oxford and William Temple Foundation, UK

Beginning from the proposition that prayer is a theme


that occurs throughout Lacostes writing, and using this
proposition as a heuristic through which to view, interpret
and critique his thought, this book examines Lacostes
place amid both the recent theological turn in French
thought and the post-war emergence of la nouvelle
thologie. Drawing upon unpublished and out of print
material previously only available in French, Romanian or
German, this will be of interest to scholars of philosophy,
phenomenology and theology.

the authors of this challenging book draw on


new directions in continental philosophy to reforge a

provide significant new theoretical tools to add to our

Haydon Mitchell, Lancaster University, UK
Baker, James and Reader offer new religious engagement
with the public sphere via means of interdisciplinary
analysis and empirical examples, developing what we call a
Relational Christian Realism building upon interaction with
contemporary Philosophy of Religion. This book represents
an exciting contribution to philosophy and practice of
religion on both sides of the Atlantic and aspires to be

Philosophy of Religion

Approaching Jonathan Edwards

Being as Communion

The Evolution of a Persona

A Metaphysics of Information

Carol Ball

William A. Dembski, Discovery Institute, USA

Approaching Jonathan Edwards offers a new theoretical


approach to the study of Edwards, with an emphasis on his
writing activity as the key strategy in shaping his legacy.
This book analyses the ways in which Jonathan Edwards
intense personal piety and deep experience of divine
sovereignty drove an introverted intellectual along a course
that would eventually develop into a mature and respected
public scholar.

Averroes and Hegel on


Philosophy and Religion
Catarina Belo, American University in Cairo, Egypt
ASHGATE NEW CRITICAL THINKING IN RELIGION, THEOLOGY AND
BIBLICAL STUDIES

Comparing Averroes and Hegels positions on the relation


between philosophy and religion, this book explores the
relation between faith and reason in a medieval Islamic
and a modern Christian context. Through an in-depth
analysis of Averroes and Hegels views on philosophical
and religious language and method, Belo presents new
insights into their perspectives on the relation between
philosophical knowledge and religious knowledge. In
addition to discussing the parallels and differences of their
positions, Belo explores particular works which have not
yet been analysed by modern scholarship.

Dembski has become widely known for his quest to


elucidate the role of information in our understanding of
science and scientific processes. In this book he clarifies and
develops some of the major themes of intelligent design,
particularly reflecting on the nature of nature itself .
Materialism sees matter as basic: information is merely a
form of matter. Dembski argues emphatically that the boot
is on the other foot: matter is really a form of information.
Building on the ideas of John Wheeler and von Baeyer, this
is a tour de force of analytical writing, and another serious
wound to the hegemony of materialism in modern science
and culture.
Colin Reeves, Coventry University, UK
In Being as Communion philosopher and mathematician
William Dembski provides a non-technical overview of
his work on information. Dembski attempts to make good
on the promise of John Wheeler, Paul Davies, and others
that information is poised to replace matter as the primary
stuff of reality. With profound implications for theology and
metaphysics, Being as Communion develops a relational
ontology that is at once congenial to science and open to
teleology in nature.

Christian Moral Theology in


the Emerging Technoculture
From Posthuman Back to Human
Brent Waters, Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary, USA
ASHGATE SCIENCE AND RELIGION SERIES

Machines and gadgets not only weave the fabric of


daily life, but more importantly embody philosophical
and religious values which shape the contemporary
moral vision; a vision that is often at odds with Christian
convictions. This book critically examines those values, and
offers a framework for how Christian moral theology should
be formed and lived out within the emerging technoculture.
Addressing contemporary ethical and religious issues, this
book will be of particular interest to students and scholars
exploring the ideas of Heidegger, Nietzsche, Grant, Arendt
and Borgmann.

The book is serious and worthwhile, written clearly
and forcefully.
Reformation
Divine Providence and Human Agency develops an
understanding of God and Gods relation to creation that
perceives God as sovereign over creation while, at the same
time, allowing for a meaningful notion of human freedom.
This book provides a bridge between contemporary
approaches that emphasise human freedom, such as
process theology and those influenced by it, and traditional
theologies that stress divine omnipotence. This volume
offers an important contribution to the debate of the
doctrine of God in the context of an evolutionary universe.

This book examines a number of landmark shifts in our


account of the relationship between human and divine
existence, as reflected through the perception of time and
corporeal experience. This book provides a representative
cross-section of influential trends in the philosophy of
religion that have shaped our understanding of the body
in its profane and sacred dimensions as site of conflicting
discourses on presence and absence, subjectivity and the
death of the subject, mortality, resurrection and eternal life.

Given renewed scholarly interest in the philosophy of Hans


Jonas, this volume should be of great relevance to scholars
in bioethics, environmental ethics and applied philosophy
generally. The editors have been masterly in the compilation
of superb contributions to the debate in this anthology.
Udo Schuklenk, Queens University, Canada
The philosophy of Hans Jonas was widely influential in the
late twentieth century, warning of the potential dangers of
technological progress and its negative effect on humanity
and nature. Jonas advocated greater moral responsibility
and taking this as a starting point, leading international
scholars and experts on his work suggest original and
promising solutions to current ethical issues within the
context of his philosophy. The book considers the vital
intersection between law and global ethics and covers
issues related to technology and ethics, medical ethics,
religion and environmental ethics.

ASHGATE STUDIES IN THEOLOGY, IMAGINATION AND THE ARTS


Series Editors: Trevor Hart, St Marys College, University of St. Andrews, UK, Jeremy Begbie, Duke University, USA
and Roger Lundin, Wheaton College, USA
What have imagination and the arts to do with theology? For much of the modern era, the answer has been not much.
It is precisely this deficit that this series seeks to redress. For, whatever role they have or have not been granted in the
theological disciplines, imagination and the arts are undeniably bound up with how we as human beings think, learn
and communicate, engage with and respond to our physical and social environments and, in particular, our awareness
and experience of that which transcends our own creatureliness. The arts are playing an increasingly significant role in
the way people come to terms with the world; at the same time, artists of many disciplines are showing a willingness
to engage with religious or theological themes. A spate of publications and courses in many educational institutions
has already established this field as one of fast-growing concern.

Between the Image and the Word

Scripture, Metaphysics, and Poetry

Theological Engagements with Imagination,


Language and Literature

Austin Farrers The Glass of Vision with


Critical Commentary

Trevor Hart, University of St. Andrews, UK

Edited by Robert MacSwain, University of the South, USA

The central contention of Christian faith is that in the


incarnation the eternal Word or Logos of God himself has
taken flesh, so becoming for us the image of the invisible God.
Our humanity itself is lived out in a constant to-ing and fro-ing
between materiality and immateriality. Approaching different
aspects of two distinct movements between the image and
the word, in the incarnation and in the dynamics of human
existence itself, Hart presents a clearer understanding of each
and explores the juxtapositions with the other.

This book offers a critical edition of arguably the greatest


work of English theology in the 20th century: Austin Farrers
Bampton Lectures published as The Glass of Vision in
1948. This critical edition also contains an introduction
to the significance and context of Farrers thought, and a
selection of thirty years worth of commentary by leading
British and European theologians and literary scholars:
David Brown, Ingolf Dalferth, Hans Haugh, Douglas Hedley,
David Jasper and Gerard Loughlin. Of interest to literary
and biblical scholars, theologians, and philosophers, this
book holds particular value to those exploring the nature of
imagination in contemporary thought and scholarship.

The Art of Subjectivity


Peder Jothen, St. Olaf College, USA
In this insightful and readable book, Peder Jothen shows
how for Kierkegaard coming to exist as a self is nothing other
than the art of subjectivity. This work should be widely
read by anyone interested in Kierkegaards writings.
William Schweiker, University of Chicago, USA
Contributing to the debate about Kierkegaards conception
of the aesthetic, this book argues that Kierkegaards concern
is provocatively to explore how a self becomes Christian,
with aesthetics a dimension of such self-formation. At a
broader level, Jothen also focuses on the role, authority
and meaning of art within religious thought generally and
Christianity in particular.

Icons in Time, Persons in Eternity


Orthodox Theology and the Aesthetics of the
Christian Image

What does Wesley mean by perceptible inspiration? What


does the teaching reveal about the nature and existence
of God in Wesleys thinking? What does it suggest about
the spiritual nature of humankind? In John Wesleys
Pneumatology, it is argued that perceptible inspiration
more than a sidebar of Methodist thought, offers a useful
model for considering the various features of Wesleys views
on the work of the Spirit in relation to human existence,
participatory religious knowledge and moral theology.

BARTH STUDIES

Icons in Time, Persons in Eternity presents a critical,

and philosophical studies of the Christian image and
redefines this within the Orthodox tradition by exploring
the ontological and aesthetic implications of Byzantine
Orthodox ascetic and mystical theology. It finds Modernist
interest in the aesthetic peculiarity of icons significant,
and essential for re-evaluating their relationship to nonrepresentational art. The reader will find in these pages
reasons to reconcile Modernism with the Christian image
and Orthodox tradition with creative form in art.

Cunningham shows that Wesley was not only a man of


one book (the Bible) and fully Christ-imbued (christocentric)
but also perhaps the first postmodern, pentecostal, and
pneumatological theologian. Wesleys robust pneumatology
remains ahead of multiple contemporary discussions and, for
those capable of perceiving the Spirits inspiration, will catalyze
their pneumatological imagination for the next generation.

ASHGATE STUDIES IN PHILOSOPHY AND THEOLOGY


IN LATE ANTIQUITY
Series Editors: Mark Edwards, Christ Church, University of Oxford, UK and Lewis Ayres, Durham University, UK
The Ashgate Studies in Philosophy and Theology in Late Antiquity series focuses on major theologians, not as
representatives of a tradition, whether Christian or classical, but as individuals immersed in the intellectual culture of
their day. Each book concentrates on the arguments, not merely the opinions, of a single Christian writer or group of
writers from the period AD 100600 and compares and contrasts these arguments with those of pagan contemporaries
who addressed similar questions. By study of the political, cultural and social milieu, contributors to the series show
what external factors led to the convergence or divergence of Christianity and pagan thought in particular localities or
periods. Pagan and Christian teachings are set out in a clear and systematic form making it possible to bring to light
the true originality of the authors thought and to estimate the value of his work for modern times. This high profile
research series offers an important contribution to areas of contemporary research in the patristic period, as well as
providing new links into later periods, particularly the medieval and reformation.

Divination and Theurgy


in Neoplatonism

Image, Word and God in the


Early Christian Centuries

Oracles of the Gods

Mark Edwards, University of Oxford, UK

Crystal Addey, University of St. Andrews, UK

This book investigates the concept of Logos in pagan,


Jewish and Christian thought, with a view to elucidating
the polyphonic functions which the word acquired when
used in theological discourse. Edwards presents a survey
of theological applications of the term Logos in Greek, Jewish
and Christian thought from Plato to Augustine and Proclus.
Bringing together materials which are rarely synthesized
in modern study, this book shows how Greek and biblical
thought part company in their appraisal of the capacity of
reason to grasp the nature of God, and how in consequence
verbal revelation plays a more significant role in biblical
teaching.

A very interesting exploration of the importance of oracles,


divination and other religious practices to the philosophers
of Late Antiquity, viewed against the general religious
background of the period.
Dominic OMeara, University of Fribourg, Switzerland
This book explores the extensive links between oracles and
philosophy in Late Antiquity, particularly focusing on the
roles of oracles and other forms of divination in third and
fourth century CE Neoplatonism. Examining some of the
most significant debates between pagan philosophers and
Christian intellectuals on the nature of oracles as a central
yet contested element of religious tradition, Addey focuses
particularly on Porphyrys Philosophy from Oracles and
Iamblichus De Mysteriis.

Philosophy of Religion

Individuality in Late Antiquity

Key Theological Thinkers

Edited by Johannes Zachhuber, Trinity College, University of


Oxford, UK and Alexis Torrance, Princeton University, USA

From Modern to Postmodern

This valuable book forms part of a growing emphasis on


the history of individuality and the self in late antiquity. It
provides a corrective to Foucaults Care of the Self, and
shows that the western narrative that takes Augustine as
its starting point is not the only game in town. Developing
the discussion in Aristotles Categories, late antique
Neoplatonists and Christians alike debated the philosophical
basis of individuality. In the fourth century, Trinitarian
theology presented a special challenge, and other aspects of
the problem came to the fore with the growing ascetic theory
of the self and the difficulties surrounding the Christian
doctrine of bodily resurrection. The editors have drawn on
the best scholarship in philosophy, theology, and the history
of Christian thought to show the centrality of these issues
and the intensity of the discussion. Anyone interested in the
roots of modern theories of the individual will find this book
crucial reading.
Averil Cameron, University of Oxford, UK
Late antiquity is increasingly recognised as a period
of important cultural transformation. One of its crucial
aspects is the emergence of a new awareness of human
individuality. In this book, the authors assess the influence
of seminal thinkers, including the Gnostics, Plotinus, and
Augustine, but also of cultural and religious practices
such as astrology and monasticism, as well as, more
generally, the role played by intellectual disciplines such as
grammar and Christian theology. The volume serves as a
comprehensive introduction to late antique understandings
of human individuality.

Porphyry in Fragments
Reception of an Anti-Christian Text in Late Antiquity
Ariane Magny, Thompson Rivers University, Canada
The Greek philosopher Porphyry of Tyre had a reputation
as the fiercest critic of Christianity. It was well-deserved:
he composed fifteen discourses against the Christians,
so offensive that Christian emperors ordered them to be
burnt. We thus rely on the testimonies of three prominent
Christian writers to know what Porphyry wrote. Porphyry in
Fragments argues that Porphyrys actual thoughts became
mixed with the thoughts of the Christians who preserved
his ideas, as well as those of other Christian opponents.

A Kryptic Model of the Incarnation


Andrew Ter Ern Loke, Hong Kong University
ASHGATE NEW CRITICAL THINKING IN RELIGION, THEOLOGY AND
BIBLICAL STUDIES

Well organised and comprehensive, contributing new


material to a debate that is complex and philosophically
challenging.
Anna Marmodoro, University of Oxford, UK
Being divine seems to entail being omniscient, omnipotent
and omnipresent, but the New Testament portrays Jesus
as having human characteristics. It seems logically
impossible that any single individual could possess such
mutually exclusive sets of properties. A Kryptic Model of
the Incarnation aims to provide a critical reflection of these
challenges and to offer a compelling response integrating
aspects from analytic philosophy of religion, systematic
theology, and historical-critical studies.

his theological and philosophical understanding of evil and
its relationship to the love of God. The book seeks to correct a

Edited by Francesca Bugliani Knox and David Lonsdale,


both at Heythrop College, University of London, UK
For the authors in this rich volume, poetry is not merely
an artful form of discourse; it exemplifies a way of thinking.
Poetic imagination underlies and overlaps with the minds
quest for the metaphysical and the religious. In a mixture of
theoretical considerations and case studies, these essays
offer a valuable summary of the state of the question of the
relation of theology and literature, and they provide enticing
and often delightful insights into different styles of poetic
imagination as it opens on to the transcendent.
Richard Viladesau, Fordham University, USA
What is the role of spiritual experience in poetry? How
do poetic imagination and religious beliefs interact?
Exploring such questions through the concept of the
religious imagination, this book integrates interdisciplinary
research in the area of poetry on the one hand, and
theology, philosophy and Christian spirituality on the other.
Established theologians, philosophers, literary critics and
creative writers explain the primary role of imagination in
the writing and reading of poetry.

Relating God and the Self


Dynamic Interplay
Jan-Olav Henriksen, Norwegian School of Theology
By discussing critically different ways the symbol of
God functions in the formation of the self, this book
develops a nuanced and original approach to the interplay
between God and the self. It suggests that play is actually
an important metaphor in order to develop a dynamic
understanding of religions way of relating God and the
Self. This approach challenges understandings of religion
focussing only its cognitive claims, as well as those who
emphasize doctrinal orthodoxy as the most important
element in religion.

DIALOGUES IN SOUTH ASIAN TRADITIONS:


RELIGION, PHILOSOPHY, LITERATURE AND HISTORY
Series Editors: Laurie Patton, Duke University, USA and Brian Black, Lancaster University, UK
This series examines the use of the dialogical genre in South Asian religious and cultural traditions. Historical
inquiries into the plurality of religious identity in South Asia, particularly when constructed by the dialogical genre,
are crucial in an age when, as Amartya Sen has recently observed, singular identities seem to hold more destructive
sway than multiple ones. This series approaches dialogue in its widest sense, including discussion, debate, argument,
conversation, communication, confrontation, and negotiation. Opening up a dynamic historical and literary mode
of analysis, which assumes the plural dimensions of religious identities and communities from the start, this series
challenges many outdated assumptions and representations of South Asian religions.

Thinking Inside the Box
Edited by Jessica Frazier, Oxford Centre for Hindu Studies

This wonderful book about classification in Indian
philosophy goes to the heart of questions about how we
understand the world and the nature of rationality itself.
The book is truly interdisciplinary with contributions from

contemporary relevance.
Gavin Flood, University of Oxford, UK
Shedding light on the way in which Indian philosophical
traditions crafted an elaborate picture of the world, this book
brings Indian thinkers into dialogue with modern philosophy
and global concerns. For those interested in philosophical
traditions in general, this book will establish a foundation for
further comparative perspectives on philosophy. For those
concerned with the understanding of Indic culture, it will
provide a platform for the continued renaissance of research
into Indias rich philosophical traditions.

A Selfless Response to an Illusory World

Warren Lee Todd, University of South Wales, UK


Comparing the metaphysics and ethics of two of the most
influential Indian masters, akara and ntideva, Todd
shows that the methodologies and aims of these Buddhist
and Hindu masters trace remarkably similar cross-cutting
paths. Treating Buddhism and Hinduism with equal
respect, this book compares and reinterprets the Indian
material so as to engage with contemporary Western
debates on self and to show that Indian philosophy is
indeed a philosophy of dialogue.

The cognitive science of religion is a new discipline

architecture of the human mind. This book deals with the
philosophical and theological implications of the cognitive
science of religion which grounds religious belief in human
cognitive structures: religious belief is natural, in a way
that even scientific thought is not. Philosophers and
theologians from North America, UK and Australia, explore
the alleged conflict between truth claims and examine the

Seeking Truth: Roger Norths Notes


on Newton and Correspondence
with Samuel Clarke c.17041713
Seeking Truth not only adds significantly to our
understanding of Roger Norths mindset and work, but
it offers a unique perspective on the manner in which an
intelligent provincial intellectual, who prided himself on
being a discerning critic, attempted to come to terms with
the content of Newtonian natural philosophy as well as
with its perceived ramifications for theology and moral
philosophy.
Mordechai Feingold, California Institute of Technology, USA
In the early 1690s Roger North was preparing to remove from
London to Rougham, Norfolk, where he planned to continue
his search for truth, which for him meant knowledge of
nature, including human nature. This was interrupted by
his reading of Newtons books on mechanics and optics;
his correspondence with Norfolk clergyman Samuel Clarke;
and his reading and response to Clarkes publication on the
philosophy of the Godhead. Kassler details the challenges
that these events presented, and includes editions of Norths
notes on Newtons books, as well as what now remains of
the 1706 and later correspondence with Clarke.

The validity of the religious quest is defended across


faiths. Yet it is not only the quest, but also the way in
which religions have developed which is of central
significance. Their committed followers live ordinary lives
in the mainstream of the world, working out their faith in
relation to life. In Sensible Religion, leading thinkers in
world religions explore how religions are in conversation
with other disciplines, bringing a transcendent perspective
to the discussion. Countering the argument that religion
is at root extremist and irrational, Sensible Religion brings
together thoughtful reflections by leading thinkers about

Edited by Winnifred Fallers Sullivan, Indiana University,
USA and Lori G. Beaman, University of Ottawa, Canada

Edited by Jon Stewart, University of Copenhagen, Denmark


KIERKEGAARD RESEARCH: SOURCES, RECEPTION AND RESOURCES

Tome IV examines Kierkegaards surprisingly extensive


influence in the Anglophone world of literature and art,
particularly in the United States. His thought appears in the
work of the novelists Walker Percy, James Baldwin, Flannery
OConnor, William Styron, Don Delillo, and Louise Erdrich.
W.H. Auden sought in Kierkegaard ideas for his poetic
works, and the contemporary English novelist David Lodge
has written a novel Therapy, in which Kierkegaard plays an
important role. Cryptic traces of Kierkegaard can also be
found in the work of the famous Irish writer James Joyce.

Volume 12, Tome V: Kierkegaards


Influence on Literature, Criticism
and Art
The Romance Languages, Central and Eastern Europe
Edited by Jon Stewart, University of Copenhagen, Denmark
KIERKEGAARD RESEARCH: SOURCES, RECEPTION AND RESOURCES

Tome V treats the work of a heterogeneous group of writers


from the Romance languages and from Central and Eastern
Europe. Kierkegaard has been particularly important for
Spanish literature: the Argentine writers Jorge Luis Borges,
Leonardo Castellani, and Ernesto Sbato, the Mexican writer
Carlos Fuentes, and the Spanish essayist and philosopher
Mara Zambrano were all inspired to varying degrees by him.
The tome examines how Kierkegaards treatment of the story
of Abraham and Isaac in Fear and Trembling interested the
Polish-born Israeli novelist Pinhas Sadeh.

ASHGATE AHRC/ESRC RELIGION AND SOCIETY SERIES

In this book leading international scholars from a diverse


range of disciplines explore how countries today live
with religious difference and consider how considering
establishments reveals the limitations of universal,
multicultural, and interfaith models of religious freedom.
Examining the various forms religion takes in Tunisia,
Canada, Taiwan, South Africa, and the USA, amongst
others, this book argues that legal protections for religious
freedom can only be understood in a context of socially and
culturally specific constraints.

Philosophy of Religion

Twentieth Century Christian


Responses to Religious Pluralism
Difference is Everything
David Pitman, University of Queensland, Australia
ASHGATE NEW CRITICAL THINKING IN RELIGION, THEOLOGY AND
BIBLICAL STUDIES

This is a highly competent, well written and very readable


survey of the key players in the Christian debate on religious
pluralism. It not only provides an important introduction
to the field, but makes its own valuable contribution to the
Christian theology of religions.
Philip C. Almond, University of Queensland, Australia
Presenting an accessible introduction to the contemporary
issues and challenges facing all those engaged in the
further development of inter-faith relationships, dialogue
and partnership between the world religions, Pitman argues
that the future of world peace and prosperity depends
on the outcome. This is accomplished with particular
reference to ten key twentieth-century theologians, each of
whom had significant influence in the field of inter-religious
studies, both during their lifetime and beyond.

IN PHILOSOPHY AND THEOLOGY
Series Editors: Martin Warner, University of Warwick, UK and
Kevin Vanhoozer, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, USA
Transcending Boundaries in Philosophy and Theology is an
interdisciplinary series exploring new opportunities in the
dialogue between philosophy and theology that go beyond

resources available for engaging with those forms of enquiry,
experience and sensibility that theology has historically
sought to address. Drawing together new writing and
research from leading international scholars in the field, this
high profile research series offers an important contribution
to contemporary research across the interdisciplinary
perspectives relating theology and philosophy.

ASHGATE CONTEMPORARY ECCLESIOLOGY

This is a remarkable set of essays, exploring the varied


interests of an outstanding scholar. The result is a powerful
vision of the landscape of British Christianity but also of
wider questions pertaining to religion in the contemporary
world, bringing together sociology, theology, ecclesiology
and history in a unique way.
Simon Coleman, University of Toronto, Canada
In this ground-breaking book exploring Christianity and
contemporary culture, internationally-renowned scholars
interface with the legacy of Andrew Walkers work and
look forward in their own predictions of trends. Following
Walkers special interests in house churches, charismatic
renewal, culture and faith, this book picks up on these
themes and also looks more broadly at topics such as
Pentecostalism, Alpha and post-Evangelicalism.

This book explores the significance of the Resurrection


for human moral imagination and moral life. It shows that
the Resurrection, contemplatively apprehended, shifts our
ethically conditioned understanding of what it means to be
human. It shifts our relationship to mortality and finitude,
and opens up new possibilities and sources for human life
and hope. It thereby transforms the picture of human being
operative in moral thinking about justice and personal
relations, as well as some of our fundamental moral concepts.
