Background and Introduction
About this book
The Palgrave Handbook of Radical Theology is the definitive guide to radical theology and the commencement for new directions in that field. For the first time, radical theology is addressed and assessed in a single, comprehensive volume, including introductory and historical essays for the beginner, essays on major figures and their thought, and shorter articles on various themes, concepts, and related topics. This book is a seminal work for the radical theology movement. It clarifies origins and demonstrates the exigency and utility of current figures and issues. A useful and essential guide for newcomers and veterans in the field, this volume serves as both a reference work and an introduction to omitted or forgotten topics within contemporary discussions.
- Death of God
- Radical Thought
“It is an important moment, not without its irony, when a revolutionary multiplicity of
thinkers can be kneaded into a heritage, indeed a tradition deserving of a handbook. The irony doubles: how many current thinkers even realize that “radical” and “theology” cohabit? Rodkey and Miller have nobly mobilized a spirited assemblage of voices about prior voices for this needy time-- when standard secularism fails along with conventional religion to energize the justice, the ecology and the creativity of a shared life.” (Catherine Keller, George T. Cobb Professor of Constructive Theology, Drew University, USA)
“This is a truly encyclopedic treatment of a conversation that for a couple of decades
made theology an important contributor to the cultural and intellectual conversation. This book may help to re-enliven radical theology and renew the sense, now all too anemic, that theology is important.” (John B. Cobb, Jr., founding co-director of the Center for Process Studies and Process & Faith; Ingraham Professor of Theology Emeritus, School of Theology at Claremont; Avery Professor Emeritus, Claremont Graduate School, USA)
