Theologians, social scientists and other scholars provide a 'stocktaking' of public theology at the beginning of the 21st century. The contributions combine retrospect and prospect, seeking to discern continuities and changes.

- Publisher The book is a unique stocktaking, by a leading international group of theologians, social scientists and other scholars, on issue facing public theology at the beginning of the 21st century. It combines retrospect and prospect, in that it reflects on the issues and approaches that have characterized public theology in the 20th century, especially its latter half, and attempts to anticipate those which will or should come to the fore in the 21st century, seeking to discern continuities and changes. Contributors include Jurgen Moltmann, Raymond Plant and Andrew Morton, who discusses in particular the work of Duncan Forrester. An impressive variety of topics are discussed in relation to public theology, from history to technology, from globalization to medical ethics, from spirituality to forgiveness among others. This unique collection will be essential reading for anyone interested in the history and future of public theology.

Three opening chapters deal with the overall theme of public or political theology, with Jurgen Moltmann giving a critical historical account from the Second World War onwards, Raymond Plant relating such theology to cultural pluralism, and Andrew Morton illustrating it from the work of Duncan Forrester. These are followed by pairs of contributions relating public theology to more specific topicsr: History; Technology and Creation; Globalization; Spirituality; Punishment and Forgiveness; Medical Ethics; Tolerance and Human Rights; Social Exclusion and Equality.
