9780334024767: Thinking About God: An Introduction to Theology

Growing out of a series of public lectures presented to a large audience of non-theologians, this book is one of the most attractive introductions to theology to appear in recent years.Perhaps, as the author herself indicates, “introduction” is not the best word to describe the book. For above all, the book is an invitation to share Dorothee Sölle’s enthusiasm for theology, and her delight in the beauty and the power of religious and theological language and the themes it expresses.Thinking about God covers all of the major areas of modern theology. After discussing the nature of systematic theology and comparing orthodox, liberal, and radical approaches, it looks at the use of the Bible in theology. Then follow chapters on creation, sin, feminist liberation theology, the understanding of grace, black theology, Jesus, cross and resurrection, the kingdom of God and the church, the theology of peace, the end of theism, and the question of God.A bibliography is provided at the end of each chapter, and Dorothee Sölle, who is familiar with theology on both sides of the Atlantic, has herself revised the entries for the English-language edition.Dorothee Sölle has taught philosophy, literature, and theology at several German universities, and has been on the faculty of Union Theological Seminary, New York.
