Beskrivning

'Since the middle of the twentieth century,' writes Elizabeth Johnson, 'there has been a renaissance of new insights into God in the Christian tradition.

On different continents, under pressure from historical events and social conditions, people of faith have glimpsed the living God in fresh ways.

It is not that a wholly different God is discovered from the One believed in by previous generations.

Christian faith does not believe in a new God but, finding itself in new situations, seeks the presence of God there.

Aspects long-forgotten are brought into new relationships with current events, and the depths of divine compassion are appreciated in ways not previously imagined.'

This book sets out the fruit of these discoveries.

The first chapter describes Johnson's point of departure and the rules of engagement, with each succeeding chapter distilling a discrete idea of God.

Featured are transcendental, political, liberation, feminist, black, Hispanic, interreligious, and ecological theologies, ending with the particular Christian idea of the one God as Trinity. [Språk: Engelska] Häftad
