Theology Against Religion

Full Product Description

This title gives a constructive approach from a theological perspective about the category of religion in Dietrich Bonhoeffer and Karl Barth. What does it mean to speak of Christianity as a religion? What are the implications of this to relations with secular bodies? If Christianity is identified as a 'religion', how does it relate to other similar human phenomena with which it might loosely be grouped? How should these others be understood in relation to Christianity from the perspective of a Christian theology of religion (as a prior engagement before a theology of the religions)? What makes, for example, Hinduism, Judaism and Islam theologically distinctive as entities from other communities or organizations such as trade unions, political parties or large non-governmental organizations? How should Christianity relate to a complexly pluralistic, religious and secular world? This book considers the question of how to understand religion theologically. The category of 'religion' is one which continues to be used politically and generally, and this book seeks to consider this category theologically, rather than sociologically, ethnographically, philosophically or anthropologically.In order to answer these questions, this book draws constructively on Bonhoeffer and Barth's theologies of religion/religionlessness.
