    Interchange in the Wake of God

    Edited by David Lewin, Simon D. Podmore, Duane Williams

    Exploration of the interface between mystical theology and continental philosophy is a defining feature of the current intellectual and even devotional climate.

    Contemporary Theological Explorations in Christian Mysticism

  • Christian Theology and the Secular University

    By Paul A. Macdonald, Jr.

  • Divine Generosity and Human Creativity

    Theology through Symbol, Painting and Architecture

    By David Brown

    Partly in a desire to defend divine freedom and partly because it is seen as the only way of preserving a distinctive voice for theology, much contemporary theology has artificially restricted revelation and religious experience, effectively cutting off those who find God beyond the walls of the…

    Edited by Mark S. Burrows, Jean Ward, Małgorzata Grzegorzewska

    On Violence, Liturgy and Reconciliation

    By David Martin

    Integrating Philosophy and Theology
