Theological perspectives on God and beauty by John Milbank( )

10 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 842 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Theology and the political : the new debate by Creston Davis( Book )

19 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 514 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The essays in Theology and the Political—written by some of the world’s foremost theologians, philosophers, and literary critics—analyze the ethics and consequences of human action. They explore the spiritual dimensions of ontology, considering the relationship between ontology and the political in light of the thought of figures ranging from Plato to Marx, Levinas to Derrida, and Augustine to Lacan. Together, the contributors challenge the belief that meaningful action is simply the successful assertion of will, that politics is ultimately reducible to “might makes right.” From a variety of perspectives, they suggest that grounding human action and politics in materialist critique offers revolutionary possibilities that transcend the nihilism inherent in both contemporary liberal democratic theory and neoconservative ideology
The word made strange : theology, language, culture by John Milbank( Book )

14 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 502 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The essays are focused around the theme of a theological approach to language, and offer a richly textured and broad ranging inquiry which will contribute to a variety of contemporary debates
Gift and the unity of being by Antonio López( )

8 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 468 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Starting from both our originary experience of being given to ourselves and Jesus Christ's archetypal self-donation, Gift and the Unity of Being elucidates the sense in which gift is the form of being's unity, while unity itself constitutes the permanence of the gift of being. In dialogue with ancient and modern philosophers and theologians, López offers a synthetic, rather than systematic, account of the unity proper to being, the human person, God, and the relations among them. The book shows how contemplation of the triune God of Love through Jesus Christ in the Holy Spirit allows us to discover the eternal communion that being is and to which finite being is called. It also illustrates the sense in which God's gratuitousness unexpectedly offers the human person the possibility to recognize and embrace his origin and destiny, and thus he is given to see and taste in God's light the ever-fruitful, dramatic, and mysterious positivity of being."--
A theology of nonsense by Josephine Gabelman( )

6 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 435 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There is within all theological utterances something of the ridiculous, perhaps more so in Christianity, given its proclivity for the paradoxical and the childlike. Yet, few theologians are willing to discuss that consent to the Christian doctrine often requires a faith that goes beyond reason or does not exclusively identify with it. There seems to be a fear that the association of theology with the absurd will give fuel to the skeptic's refrain: "you can't seriously believe in all that nonsense" This book considers the legitimacy of the skeptic's objection and rather than trying to explain away points of logical contradiction, the author explores the possibility that an idea can be contrary to rationality and also true and meaningful. The study involves the systematic analysis of central stylistic features of literary nonsense using Lewis Carroll's famous Alice stories as exemplar. The project culminates in the setting up of a nonsense theology by considering the practical and evangelical ramifications of associating Christian faith with nonsense literature; and conversely, the value of relating theological principles to the study of literary nonsense. Ultimately, the research suggests that faith is always a risk and that a strictly rational apologetic misrepresents the nature of Christian truth--
The suspended middle : Henri de Lubac and the debate concerning the supernatural by John Milbank( Book )

14 editions published between 2005 and 2013 in English and Italian and held by 326 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"French Jesuit Henri de Lubac (1896-1991) was arguably the most revolutionary theologian of the twentieth century. He proposed that Western theology since the early modern period had lost sight of the key to integrating faith and reason - the truth that all human being are naturally oriented toward the supernatural." "In this vital book John Milbank defends de Lubac's claim and pushes it to a more radical extreme. The Suspended Middle shows how such a claim entails a 'nonontology' suspended between rational philosophy and revealed theology, interweaving the two while denying them any pure autonomy from each other."--BOOK JACKET
The politics of virtue : post-liberalism and the human future by John Milbank( Book )

16 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 277 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Contemporary politics is dominated by a liberal creed that champions ‘negative liberty’ and individual happiness. This creed undergirds positions on both the right and the left – free-market capitalism, state bureaucracy and individualism in social life. The triumph of liberalism has had the effect of subordinating human association and the common good to narrow self-interest and short-term utility. By contrast, post-liberalism promotes individual fulfilment and mutual flourishing based on shared goals that have more substantive content than the formal abstractions of liberal law and contract, and yet are also adaptable to different cultural and local traditions. In this important book, John Milbank and Adrian Pabst apply this analysis to the economy, politics, culture, and international affairs. In each case, having diagnosed the crisis of liberalism, they propose post-liberal alternatives, notably new concepts and fresh policy ideas. They demonstrate that, amid the current crisis, post-liberalism is a programme that could define a new politics of virtue and the common good. --
The future of love : essays in political theology by John Milbank( Book )

14 editions published between 1901 and 2009 in English and held by 272 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With a newly written preface relating his theology to the current global situation, The Future of Love contains revised versions of eighteen of John Milbank's essays on theology, politics, religion, and culture-ranging from the onset of neoliberalism to its current crisis, and from the British to the global context. Many of the essays first appeared in obscure places and are thus not widely known. Also included are Milbank's most important responses to critiques of his seminal work, Theology and Social Theory. Taken together, the collection amounts to a "political theology" arrived at from diverse angles. This work is essential reading for all concerned with the current situation of religion in the era of globalization and with the future development of Radical Orthodoxy
Paul's new moment : continental philosophy and the future of Christian theology by John Milbank( Book )

10 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and Italian and held by 240 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Are there moments in Christian history when non-Christians in some ways understand Christianity better than Christians? ... Today some leading secular thinkers have turned to a surprising source: the apostle Paul. The rediscovery of Paul by atheistic or agnostic European philosophers is one of the most striking recent developments in philosophy--and certainly one of keen interest to the church"--Back cover
The radical orthodoxy reader by D. Stephen Long( Book )

12 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 204 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The religious dimension in the thought of Giambattista Vico, 1668-1744 by John Milbank( Book )

25 editions published between 1991 and 1992 in English and held by 188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this two-volume work, the author argues that the avant-garde features of Giambattista Vico's thought stem directly from his engagement with theological traditions, and his concern to develop a Catholic apologetic. This claim is established through a thorough engagement with all Vico's texts
Stations on the journey of inquiry : formative writings of David B. Burrell, 1962-72 by David B Burrell( )

3 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 137 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this collection, Stations on the Journey of Inquiry, David Burrell launches a revolutionary reinterpretation of how any inquiry proceeds, boldly critiquing presumptuous theories of knowledge, language, and ethics. While his later publications, Analogy and Philosophical Language (1973) and Aquinas: God and Action (1979), elucidate Aquinas's linguistic theology, these early writings show what often escapes articulation: how one comes to understanding and ""takes"" a judgment. Although Aquinas serves as an axial figure for Burrell's expansive corpus of scholarship spanning more than fifty year
The suspended middle : Henri de Lubac and the renewed split in modern Catholic theology by John Milbank( Book )

11 editions published between 2006 and 2014 in English and French and held by 116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

French Jesuit Henri de Lubac (1896–1991) was arguably the most revolutionary yet under-acknowledged theologian of the twentieth century. He proposed that Western theology since the early modern period had lost sight of the key to integrating faith and reason -- namely, the truth that all human beings are naturally oriented toward the supernatural. Originally published in 2005, The Suspended Middle by John Milbank defends and amplifies de Lubac’s provocative thesis and rebuts its many critics. In this second edition Milbank has expanded and clarified his argument throughout to take greater account of new critiques of de Lubac. The future of the Christian faith is at stake, says Milbank, as he urges his readers to recover and reinvigorate de Lubac’s biblical-theological-philosophical vision
