Description - The Blackwell Companion to Political Theology by Peter Scott

Written by a team of international experts, this Companion provides the first comprehensive survey and interpretation of contemporary Christian political theology. The Companion comprises 35 freshly-commissioned essays which embody the best current thinking in the field. These essays:- Explore the political aspects of Christian sources such as scripture and liturgy Consider the interface of theology with political ideologies, including the contribution of theology to feminist, ecological, black and pacifist movements Assess the contribution of major political theologians and theological movements Indicate how central Christian doctrines such as the Trinity and Christology have politics embedded within them Show how theology impacts upon present-day political issues Two concluding essays present Jewish and Muslim perspectives on political theology. The contributors are drawn from various traditions of political theology, but all of them demonstrate that Christian theology is inherently political, and that politics is properly illuminated by Christian perspectives.
