Delving into the complex aspects of Christian beliefs in their historical, theological, and social diversity, Tanner offers a rigorous and sustained analysis of the relations of belief to attitudes and action. In arguing that Christian beliefs about God and the world can be disengaged from complicity with social forces of reaction and oppression, Tanner discloses the radical potential of Christian beliefs and realigns them with efforts to bring about a just society.

About the Author:

Kathryn Tanner is Dorothy Grant Maclear Professor of Theology at the University of Chicago Divinity School. She is the author of Economy of Grace (2005) and Jesus, Humanity and the Trinity: A Brief Systematic Theology (2001).

From Library Journal:

Tanner (religious studies, Yale) critiques the relationship between theology and political commitments in order "to show how Christian beliefs about God and the world may be disentangled from a history of use in support of a status quo of injustice and reconstituted as a resource for commitment to progressive social change." Tanner grounds her progressive political beliefs in traditional, rather than radical or liberation, theology. She finds traditional theology more open to self-criticism; views of a transcendent God provide correctives that views of an immanent God cannot; and traditional theology does not usurp the place of sociopolitical analysis as revisionist theology sometimes does. Recommended for all seminary and large academic libraries.
