Family in Christian Social and Political Thought by Brent Waters
Book DescriptionBrent Waters examines the historical roots and contemporary implications of the virtual disappearance of the family in late liberal and Christian social and political thought. Waters argues that the principal cause of this disappearance is late liberalism's fixation on individual autonomy, which renders familial bonds unintelligible. He traces the history of this emphasis, from its origin in Hobbes and Locke, through Kant, to such contemporary theorists as Rawls and Okin. In response, Waters offers an alternative normative account of the family's role in social and political ordering, drawing upon the work of Althusius, Grotius, Dooyeweerd, and O'Donovan.

Christian Moral Theology in the Emerging Technoculture, Hardback (January 2014)
Machines and gadgets not only weave the fabric of daily life, but more importantly embody philosophical and religious values which shape the contemporary moral vision-a vision that is often at odds with Christian convictions. This book critically examines those values.
From Human to Posthuman, Paperback (January 2006)» View all books by Brent Waters
For many, technology symbolises the faith of the postmodern world, but it is an ambivalent faith encapsulating both the hope and fear for the future. This book examines the religious foundations underlying this troubled faith in technology, as well as critically and constructively engaging technological developments from a theological perspective.
