Publishers Description This text explores, in depth, two antithetical schools of postmodern theology, namely the radical orthodoxy of John Milbank and the nihilist textualism of Don Cupitt. The text also offers a sustained and comprehensive critique of Milbank's influential project from a nihilist textualist perspective. Althought this critique shares a number of themes underlying Cupitt's project, it also points up major difficulties with Cupitt's approach and concludes by mapping out a third way that leads beyond the responses of both Cupitt and Milbank.
