The Politics of Discipleship: Becoming Postmaterial Citizens

Front Cover
SCM Press, 2009 - Christianity and politics - 317 pages
Graham Ward is well known for his thoughtful engagement with postmodernism and contemporary critical theology. In this publication he provides a broader audience with an engaging account of the inherently political nature of postmodernity and thoughts on what it means to live the Christian faith within that setting. Ward provides an accessible guide to contemporary postmodernism and its wide-ranging implications and develops a model of discipleship that informs a faith seeking understanding, which Ward describes as 'the substance of the church's political life'.
