Converging on Culture: Theologians in Dialogue with Cultural Analysis and Criticism
Delwin Brown, Sheila Greeve Davaney, Kathryn Tanner
Oxford University Press, Oct 4, 2001 - Religion - 224 pages
Theologians are increasingly looking to cultural analysis and criticism, rather than philosophy, as a dialogue partner for cross-disciplinary studies. This book explores the importance of this shift by bringing together scholars from a variety of theological perspectives to analyze different contemporary theories of culture and cultural movements. The essays here examine the theoretical relationship between theology and cultural studies and then discuss a series of controversial topics that cry out for theological reflection.
