Polydox Reflections stages a critical dialogue concerning the ethical and theological viability of "polydoxy." A wide range of thinkers explore this theological trend in light of their own sense of the task of modern theology.
- Provides sympathetic and skeptical responses to Polydoxy - a trend in contemporary theology that emphasizes the multiplicity of creation, religious traditions, and divinity itself.
- Introduces, expands, and refines the vibrant theological possibilities of polydoxy.
- Offers theological visions that are both ontologically rigorous and politically engaged.
- Includes essays by Virginia Burrus, Mark Jordan, Catherine Keller, Laurel Schneider and Graham Ward
