Description of this Book

This reader presents a selection of key readings in the field of Radical Orthodoxy, the most influential theological movement in contemporary academic theology. Radical Orthodoxy draws on pre-Enlightenment theology and philosophy to engage critically with the assumption and priorities of secularism, modernity, postmodernity and associated theologies. In doing so, it explores a wide and exciting range of issues: music, language, society, the body, the city, power, motion, space, time, personhood, sex and gender. As such it is both controversial and extremely stimulating; provoking much fruitful debate amongst contemporary theologians. To assist those encountering Radical Orthodoxy for the first time, each section has an introductory commentary, related reading and helpful questions to encourage in-depth understanding and further study.

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review 'The Radical Orthodoxy Reader is destined to become an indispensible resource for anyone who would understand this significant movement. The Introduction by Oliver and Afterword by Milbank frame the essays in the Reader in the most helpful way. They help us understand at once the development of Radical Orthodoxy and its future. Hopefully this book will be read not only by those already acquainted with Radical Orthodoxy but also those who want to better understand what this movement is about.'- Stanley Hauerwas, Gilbert T. Rowe Professor of Theological Ethics, Duke University, USA 'The movement launched in the past decades as 'radical orthodoxy' can be especially daunting, yet Simon Oliver's lucid introductions to each grouping of exemplary essays by John Milbank, Catherine Pickstock, and Graham Ward, complemented by 'further reading' and leading questions, makes the entire archive accessible to probing students of theology--a singular and novel achievement.' - David Burrell, Hesburgh Professor Emeritus in Philosophy and Theology, University of Notre Dame, USA 'This excellent new reader on the Radical Orthodoxy movement provides discerning editorial introductions by Simon Oliver to the various selected essays, as well as bibliographic suggestions for further relevant reading in historical sources. Far from being a volume for the already converted, this collection supplies the perfect means for an informed, critical discussion of RO and its ongoing philosophical implications... A first-rate teaching tool.' - Sarah Coakley, University of Cambridge, UK
