With a newly written preface relating his theology to the current global situation, The Future of Love contains revised versions of eighteen of John Milbank's essays on theology, politics, religion, and culture-ranging from the onset of neoliberalism to its current crisis, and from the British to the global context. Many of the essays first appeared in obscure places and are thus not widely known. Also included are Milbank's most important responses to critiques of his seminal work, Theology and Social Theory. Taken together, the collection amounts to a "political theology" arrived at from diverse angles. This work is essential reading for all concerned with the current situation of religion in the era of globalization and with the future development of Radical Orthodoxy.

'The risk he takes, the range of problems he engages, the imaginative power of his mind, the sheer energy that pulses through these essays make this book essential for anyone who would understand the phenomenon - the gift - that bears the name of John Milbank.' -- Stanley Hauerwas, Duke University 'This is a marvellous collection of well-organized essays by perhaps the most thought-provoking theologian of the moment. They will confirm John Milbank's reputation as one of the most accomplished and singular of theologians currently writing.' -- William Desmond Katholieke Universiteit, Leuven ' These essays, published over thirty years and gathered in this important new book, demonstrate the consistent acuity and imaginative power of John Milbank's politico-theological vision.' -- Michael Northcott University of Edinburgh
