Omtale: Beyond Secular Order: Volume 1
Beyond Secular Order is the first of a two-volume work that expands upon renowned theologian John Milbank s innovative attempt to understand both theology and modern thought begun in his previously published classic text Theology and Social Theory. * Continues Milbank s innovative attempt to understand both theology and modern thought begun in Theology and Social Theory considered a classic work in the development of systematic theology * Authored by one of the world s most influential and highly regarded contemporary theologians * Draws on a sweep of ideas and thinkers to argue that modern secularism is a form of Christian heresy that developed from the Middle Ages and can only be overcome by a renewed account of Christendom * Shows how this heresy can be transformed into a richer blend of religion, modernity and politics * Reveals how there is a fundamental homology between modern ideas about ontology and knowledge and modern ideas about political action, expressed in both theory and practice
