“Jones offers new analyses of major figures in twentieth century theology that are often provocative and always full of insight, and his own suggestions for theological reconstruction are original and fertile. A major achievement.”–Rowan Williams, Bishop of Monmouth

Critical Theology is an exciting account of some of the key issues facing contemporary theology, as well as an original interpretation of some of the outstanding figures of twentieth century thought.

In the first part of the book, Jones examines the work of Barth, Harnack, Bonhoeffer, Rahner, Moltmann, Sobrino, and Tracy. Against this backdrop Jones develops, in part two, an original interpretation of the structure, dynamics, and perspective of Christian theology in terms of mystery, event, and rhetoric. Using these terms to construct a framework for critical theology, Jones offers a new agenda for discussing the task of Christian theology in the late twentieth century. Challenging theologians to think seriously about how they address today’s social and cultural concerns, this book makes an original and provocative contribution to contemporary debates in religious studies.

GARETH JONES is lecturer in systematic theology at the University of Birmingham, U.K., and the author of Bultmann: Toward a Critical Theology.
