9780521072298: Theology, Ideology and Liberation (Cambridge Studies in Ideology and Religion)

This work offers a theological response to the Marxist critique of ideology, a critique that suggests that Christianity is reactionary--that Christianity, in other words, concentrates on the individual, and cannot make a contribution to changing society. Peter Scott takes this criticism seriously, and offers a constructive response, stressing with feminist and liberation theologies the contextual nature of theology. Central to his argument are interpretations of resurrection as social and how God might be present to society.

Book Description:

Pressing liberation, feminist and ecological theologies into service, this book seeks to answer the question: how is theology liberating? Reflecting as it does on the nature of 'theology after Gorbachev', it outlines a theology which is practical and contextual, and enquires how Christianity might help to actually change society.

From the Back Cover:

How is theology liberating? In this post-Gorbachev world in which many demand freedom, and which the West seems ill-equipped to deliver, can we even envisage a liberative theology? Taking as his starting point the Marxist complaint that Christianity is ideological, Dr Scott argues that it is not enough for Christian theology to talk about liberation. It must be liberative. Stressing with feminist and liberation theologies the embodied, contextual nature of theology, the constructive proposal made here locates God's liberating abundance towards society in an interpretation of resurrection as social. Only in this way can a trinitarian Christian account of liberation be adequately grounded. This study will be of interest to those who wish to know if theology may speak truthfully about the transformation of society. In a period of crisis and hope, the book offers the shape of a liberative theology that might nerve Christian practice towards social freedom.
