10 editions published between 1996 and 2005 in English and held by 462 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Explores the ways that the Christian prophecy of apocalypse--the fiery end of the world on Earth--has shaped Western thought and history.

Face of the deep : a theology of becoming by Catherine Keller( Book )

12 editions published between 2002 and 2007 in English and held by 404 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Keller's tehomic theology (from the Hebrew tehom, which suggests the depth of the ocean) draws from Whitehead, Joyce, and Melville. She retrieves the suppressed force of primordial chaos in the hope of putting it to a feminist end without jettisoning the structure of Christian theology
Ecospirit : religions and philosophies for the earth by Laurel Kearns( Book )

12 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 391 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We hope?even as we doubt?that the environmental crisis can be controlled. Public awareness of our species? self-destructiveness as material beings in a material world is growing?but so is the destructiveness. The practical interventions needed for saving and restoring the earth will require a collective shift of such magnitude as to take on a spiritual and religious intensity. This transformation has in part already begun. Traditions of ecological theology and ecologically aware religious practice have been preparing the way for decades. Yet these traditions still remain marginal to society, ac

Postcolonial theologies : divinity and empire( Book )

7 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 267 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A theology in tune with postcolonial theory has the potential to creatively inform and transform ecclesial practice. Focusing on the relation of theology to postcolonial theory, Postcolonial Theologies brings together a wide diversity of authors, many of them fresh and exciting theological voices, in essays that are stunningly creative and prophetically lucid. All essays are theologically constructive, not merely deconstructive or critical, in their visions for Christianity. Forming a sort of doctrinal landscape, they emerge under the themes of theological anthropology shaped by ethnicity, class, and privilege; a Christology that intersects the claims of Christ and empire; and a Cosmology that imagines a postcolonial world
Process and difference : between cosmological and poststructuralist postmodernisms( Book )

10 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 240 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The similarities and creative tensions between French-based poststructuralism and Whiteheadian process thought are examined here by leading scholars. Although both approaches are labeled "postmodern," their own proponents often take them to be so dissimilar as to be opposed. Contributors to this book, however, argue that processing these differences of theory at a deeper level may cultivate fertile and innovative modes of reflection. Through their comparisons, contrasts, and hybridizations of process and poststructuralist theories, the contributors variously redefine concepts of divinity and cosmos, advance the interaction between science and religion, and engage the sex/gender and religious ethics of otherness and subjectivity."--Jacket
On the mystery : discerning divinity in process by Catherine Keller( Book )

9 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 216 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Catherine Keller offers this brief and unconventional introduction to theological thinking, especially as recast by process thought. Keller here takes up theology itself as a quest for religious authenticity in a way that helps us probe the meaning of the divine, of divine power and compassion, of our evolving world, and of Christian life in the Spirit." "Through a combination of brilliant writing, story, engaging reflection, and questioning of old shibboleths, Keller redeems theology from its often-dry and predictable categories to reveal what has always been at the heart of the theological enterprise: a personal search for intellectually honest and credible ways to make sense of the loving mystery that encompasses even our confounding times."--Jacket
Toward a theology of eros : transfiguring passion at the limits of discipline by Virginia Burrus( Book )

12 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 214 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What does theology have to say about the place of eroticism in the salvific transformation of men and women, even of the cosmos itself? How, in turn, does eros infuse theological practice and transfigure doctrinal tropes? This book explores a largely uncharted territory in the realm of theological erotics
Cloud of the impossible : negative theology and planetary entanglement by Catherine Keller( Book )

8 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The experience of the impossible churns up in our epoch whenever a collective dream turns to trauma: politically, sexually, economically, and with a certain ultimacy, ecologically. Out of an ancient theological lineage, the figure of the cloud comes to convey possibility in the face of the impossible. An old mystical nonknowing of God now hosts a current knowledge of uncertainty, of indeterminate and interdependent outcomes, possibly catastrophic. Yet the connectivity and collectivity of social movements, of the fragile, unlikely webs of an alternative notion of existence, keep materializing--a haunting hope, densely entangled, suggesting a more convivial, relational world. Catherine Keller brings process, feminist, and ecopolitical theologies into transdisciplinary conversation with continental philosophy, the quantum entanglements of a "participatory universe", and the writings of Nicholas of Cusa, Walt Whitman, A. N. Whitehead, Gilles Deleuze, and Judith Butlerto develop a "theopoetics of nonseparable difference". Global movements, personal embroilments, religious diversity, the inextricable relations of humans and nonhumans--these phenomena, in their unsettling togetherness, are exceeding our capacity to know and manage. By staging a series of encounters between the nonseparable and the nonknowable, Keller shows what can be born from our cloudiest entanglement. (Publisher)
Polydoxy : theology of multiplicity and relation by Catherine Keller( Book )

10 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 128 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Religious pluralism, the collapse of traditional religious institutions, and the growing impact of religious studies on believers have prompted widespread rethinking of what religion is. "Polydoxy" offers a brilliant and original theological response to this intellectual crisis by suggesting that there are multiple forms of right belief. Inspired by the work of Catherine Keller, author of "The Face of the Deep", "Polydoxy" introduces a new theological approach which is both grounded and groundbreaking. Reacting against reductive or nostalgic theological tendencies
Apophatic bodies : negative theology, incarnation, and relationality by Catherine Keller( Book )

14 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 127 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This work pursues the unlikely conjunction of apophasis and the body, not for the cachet of the 'cutting edge' but rather out of an ethical passion for the integrity of all creaturely bodies as they are caught up in various ideological mechanisms that threaten their dignity and material well-being
Entangled worlds : religion, science, and new materialisms by Catherine Keller( Book )

5 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 103 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Historically speaking, theology can be said to operate "materiaphobically." Protestant Christianity in particular has bestowed upon theology a privilege of the soul over the body and belief over practice, in line with the distinction between a disembodied God and the inanimate world "He" created. Like all other human, social, and natural sciences, religious studies imported these theological dualisms into a purportedly secular modernity, mapping them furthermore onto the distinction between a rational, "enlightened" Europe on the one hand and a variously emotional, "primitive," and "animist" non-Europe on the other. The "new materialisms" currently coursing through cultural, feminist, political, and queer theories seek to displace human privilege by attending to the agency of matter itself. Far from being passive or inert, they show us that matter acts, creates, destroys, and transforms-and, as such, is more of a process than a thing. This book examines the intersections of religion and new and old materialisms. Calling upon an interdisciplinary throng of scholars in science studies, religious studies, and theology, it assembles a multiplicity of experimental perspectives on materiality: What is matter, how does it materialize, and what sorts of worlds are enacted in its varied entanglements with divinity? While both theology and religious studies have over the past few decades come to prioritize the material contexts and bodily ecologies of more-than-human life, this book sets forth the first multivocal conversation between religious studies, theology, and the body of "the new materialism."
Intercarnations : exercises in theological possibility by Catherine Keller( Book )

7 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 80 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Affirmations of body, flesh and matter pervade current theology and inevitably echo with the doctrine of the incarnation. Intercarnations redistributes its flesh, sometimes unrecognizably, in the boundlessly entangled ecologies of the world. These essays attend to matters diversely religious and irreligious, sexed and gendered, social, animal, cosmpolitan, and cosmic

An insurrectionist manifesto : four new gospels for a radical politics by Ward Blanton( )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An Insurrectionist Manifesto contains four insurrectionary gospels based on Martin Heidegger's philosophical model of the fourfold: earth and sky, gods and mortals. Challenging religious dogma and dominant philosophical theories, they offer a cooperative, world-affirming political theology that promotes new life through not resurrection but insurrection.The insurrection in these gospels unfolds as a series of miraculous yet worldly practices of vital affirmation. Since these routines do not rely on fantasies of escape, they engender intimate transformations of the self along the very coordinates from which they emerge. Enacting a comparative and contagious postsecular sensibility, these gospels draw on the work of Slavoj ¿i¿ek, Giorgio Agamben, Catherine Malabou, Francois Laruelle, Peter Sloterdijk, and Gilles Deleuze yet rejuvenate scholarship in continental philosophy, critical race theory, the new materialisms, speculative realism, and non-philosophy. They think beyond the sovereign force of the one to initiate a radical politics "after" God
