Abstract:

An attempt to reflect the varying and divergent strands in present-day political theology, and to serve as an introduction to political theology as a way of presenting the Gospel. Because it is descriptive, it collects together and expounds the writing of a large number of contemporary figures, allowing them to speak for themselves wherever possible. The first part reviews the historical developments which have led up to the appearance of political theology and the second surveys the current scene. In the substantial final section the author offers criticisms of certain types of political theology, especially liberation theology, and puts forward his own views.
