9780268008093: The Church As Polis: From Political Theology to Theological Politics As Exemplified by Jurgen Moltmann and Stanley Hauerwas

In this study, Rasmusson attempts to strengthen the current discourse in political theology by developing a critique of it that includes an innovative discussion of the relationship between church and society. He underpins this with an exposition of the thought and work of Jurgen Moltmann.

About the Author:


Arne Rasmusson is professor in systematic theology at the University of Gothenburg, Sweden.

Review:

Political theology is one of the most influential theological movement of the latter part of the twentieth century and yet, as Arne Rasmusson argues, the field suffers from deep inherent tensions in its attempt to mediate the Christian tradition and the modern emancipatory tradition. In addition, Rasmusson suggests that political theology inadequately understands its own social base and the nature of modern society. In this challenging study Rasmusson advances the current discourse in political theology through an innovative discussion of the relationship between church and society and an exposition of the thought and work of political theology's influential representative Jurgen Moltmann. Rasmusson further refines his argument by filtering Moltmann's theology through an exploration of Stanley Hauerwas' theological politics. In making his argument Rasmusson covers a broad range of central issues in political theology, including ecclesiology, hermeneutics, the theological interpretation of modernity, and ethical and political theory. Well versed in current American and European trends in theology, ethics, political theory, and sociology, Rasmusson makes an important contribution to the recent debates on church and society, political theology, and Christian ethics with The Church as Polis: From Political Theology to Theological Politics. -- Midwest Book Review
