How is theology liberating? In the context of a post-Gorbachev world, where many demand freedom which the Western powers seem ill-equipped to deliver, is it even possible to envisage a liberative theology? Taking as his starting point the Marxist complaint that Christianity is ideological, Peter 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 toward society in an interpretation of resurrection as social. Only in this way, in the author's view, can a trinitarian Christian account of liberation be adequately grounded. The book will be of interest to all those who wish to know if theology may speak truthfully about the transformation of society* it offers the shape of a liberative theology pointing towards social freedom.
-Publisher

This work offers a theological response to the Marxist critique of ideology, a critique which suggests that Christianity is reactionary: that Christianity, in other words, concentrates upon 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.
