SCM Core Text: Religion and Modern Thought
Full Product Description
The book begins by tackling the difficulties in defining terms such as religion, and what qualifies a person as being religious. It also sets out a brief background to the history and development, the key characteristics and core beliefs of each of the three Abrahamic faiths.
Following these scene-setting chapters, each section of the book goes on to look at a different theme germane to the encounter between the traditional Abrahamic religions and modern thought.
The themes discussed are; the relationship between religious faith and modern philosophy; the challenges of religious language; natural science including the effects of psychology on religion; religious pluralism, religious inclusivism and religious exclusivism; the relationship between politics, religion and the environment; post-holocaust Jewish theologies; theologies of liberation, black theology, eco-theology, feminist theology and eco-feminist theology; fundamentalism in all three of the faiths; secularisation; the effects of post-modernism and how Christianity, Judaism and Islam look in a post-modern world, analysing the characteristics of post-modernity and considering the re-interpretations of religion in a post-modern world.
