This is an innovative book about the shape theology takes in its varied interactions - religious and secular, local and global, historical and contemporary, academic and practical. * An innovative book about the shape of theology in reaction to its relationship with the Church, with theologians, with other religions, and with the university * Written by David Ford, recognized internationally as one of the most creative of contemporary theologians * Considers how theology shapes other areas of life via its conversations in the public sphere and with non-faith communities * Views theology as both a way of thinking and a way of living, and considers how this lived character cannot be entirely grasped through reason alone * The first volume to bring together a complete and well-rounded account of theology's interaction with all its conversation partners.
