Modern Theology Book Series


Born out of the journal Modern Theology, the Directions in Modern Theology book series provides issues focused on important theological topics and texts in current debate within that discipline, whilst looking at broader contemporary topics from a theological perspective.

The series analyses notions and thinkers, as well as examining a wide spectrum of 'modern' theological eras: from late Medieval through to the Enlightenment and up until the present 'post-modern' movements.

Attracting distinguished theologians from a world-wide base, the book series develops what is a unique forum for international debate on theological concerns.

Faith, Rationality and the Passions

Modern Theology Special Issue

Modern Theology recently published a special issue on the theme of Faith, Rationality and the Passions, guest edited by Sarah Coakley.

The question of the relation of passion to reason in the life of faith is a pressing one for contemporary theology, and that for a number of reasons. This special issue of Modern Theology is devoted to a selective exploration of that relation and those reasons—understood historically, systematically, and in interdisciplinary exchange with relevant recent scientific research.

The papers gathered here were first presented at the “Faith, Rationality and the Passions” conference which the editor convened at the University of Cambridge, January 11–13, 2010.
