Item description for Christianity for the Twenty-First Century by Philip Francis Esler...
As we enter the twenty-first century after Christ's birth, does Christianity have a clear future? Does it have the resources to meet the challenges of the new millennium thrown up in a world grown increasingly secular and pluralist? Can its theological and moral vision help build a future which is more informed, more compassionate, more just?Philip F. Esler and a team of expert contributors provide a basis for saying 'yes' to these questions. By looking at how Chrstianity has responded to various challenges and at many strands in its rich ethical tradition, they show that Christians could have an important voice in the future.In a spirit of open engagement with concerns central to our age, such as the role of science, the environment, poverty and riches, gender issues and war and peace, the contributors consider the continuing importance and vitality of the Christian tradition and demonstrate how its nature and insights might enrich the next millennium.The team of contributors comprises Ian Bradley, Philip F. Esler, Tim Gorringe, Michael Keeling, James P. Mackey, Steven G. Mackie, George M. Newlands, Ruth Page and Keith Whitelam.Introduction: Christianity for the Twenty-First CenturyPart OneChristianity: Critiques and ChallengesChristianity and ScienceChristianity and Secular HumanismChristianity and MarxismPart TwoChristian Ethics in a Secular ContextPoverty and Riches in the Bible and the Third WorldWomen and ReligionChristianity, Ecology and the EnvironmentChristianity, War and PeaceEpilogueAfter Christianity?>
