About "Christian Faith"
In this introduction, Peter Hodgson rethinks central Christian themes in relation to three sets of issues that confront humankind with increasing urgency* the struggle for justice; cultural and religious pluralism; and ecological and cosmological awareness. The text assumes that the Christian faith can be revised and that such changes have occured since its beginning. The volume invites readers to participate in this theological change, and encourages the process by including practical exercises in every chapter.
