- Questions why theology is no longer considered a necessary subject in the modern university, and explores the role it should play in the development of our “knowledge”
- Written by internationally-renowned and controversial theologian, Stanley Hauerwas
- Considers how theology is often excluded from the knowledges of the modern university because these are constituted by an understanding of time necessary to make economic and state realities seem inevitable
- Argues that it is precisely this difference that makes Christian theology an essential resource for the university to achieve its task - that is, to form people who are able to imagine a different world through critical and disciplined reflection
- Challenges the domesticated character of much recent theology by suggesting how prayer and the love of the poor are essential practices that should shape the theological task
- Converses with figures as diverse as Luigi Giussani, David Burrell, Stanley Fish, Wendell Berry, Jeff Stout, Rowan Williams and Sheldon Wolin
- Published in the new and prestigious Illuminations series.
