Why Bother with Theology?
Paperback |144 pp |216 x 135 mm
Theology and the Church have become peripheral to the secular world of postmodern, early Twenty-first Century Britain.
Seeking transcendent resources particularly in contemporary fiction and the cinema, Alex Wright, a leading religious publisher, argues for a reappraisal of theology and of its place in our society. Such dialogue, which also assesses the value of the burgeoning New Age movement, tries to move beyond superficial answers on the one hand and self-absorbed sectarianism or isolationism on the other, with a view to fostering a truly engaged and mutually enriching exchange between church and world.
