Reviews

""A rare gift--a critic from whom you learn. Though I do not agree with all of his criticisms of my work, Kerr--drawing imaginatively and creatively on the work of Troeltsch and Barth--has rightly framed the questions central to my and Yoder's project. We are in his debt for having done so. In this book, Kerr not only establishes himself as one of the most able readers of my and Yoder's work, but he is clearly a theologian in his own right. We will have much to learn from him in the future."" --Stanley Hauerwas, Gilbert T. Rowe Professor of Theological Ethics, Duke Divinity School, Durham, North Carolina ""This is a timely book that traverses twentieth century theology to develop a distinctive understanding of church engagement with the world. Finely executed and acutely discerning, it opens up an ecclesiology that is neither culturally accommodating nor counter-cultural. Conceiving the church as fundamentally dispossessive and missionary, Kerr announces a genuinely apocalyptic Christian politics. This is excellent theology for the up and coming generation."" --Graham Ward, Head of the School of Arts, Histories and Cultures, University of Manchester ""This is a really exciting book: engaging, provocative, and--above all--constructive. Kerr seeks to reaffirm the Christian claim that Jesus Christ is the Lord of history in the face of modernity's attempts to subsume Christ into our history. In spite of the complexity of its material, this fascinating book is so remarkably clear throughout that I found it hard to put down. It should not be ignored."" -Nicholas M. Healy, Professor of Theology and Religious Studies and Associate Dean, St. John's College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, St. John's University, Queens, New York
