In this valuable entrie to the cutting edge of theology today, veteran journalist Rupert Shortt interviews many of its most outstanding thinkers.
Shortt introduces readers to many of the figures who have provoked the recent renaissance in theology -- returning to patristic and medieval sources, reviving Trinitarian teaching, wrestling with gender issues, and speaking to the political dilemmas of our day. These thinkers speak honestly both about their advocacy for God in the academy and about their personal experiences of faith. They also speak honestly about their disagreements over what healthy theology should look like.
At a time of sharp conflict between secularists and religious conservatives the thinkers featured in "God's Advocates" neither water down Christian belief nor seal it off from the wider world, instead offering plausible, passionate -- even passionately differing -- accounts of Christian belief.
