About this Book
Leading theologian Graham Ward presents a stimulating series of reflections on Christ and contemporary culture.
- Takes as its starting point Niebuhr's famous volume on 'Christ and Culture' published in the 1970s
- Explores representations of Christ from sources as diverse as the New Testament and twentieth-century continental philosophy
- Considers Christ and culture in the light of contemporary categories such as the body, gender, desire, politics and the sublime
- Develops an original and imaginative Christology rooted in Scriptural exegesis and concerned with today's cultural issues
- The author has been described as 'the most visionary theologian of his generation'.
