Exclusion and Embrace

£8.99

Product description

Subtitled: A Theological exploration of identity, otherness and reconciliation.

Life at the end of the twentieth Century presents us with a disturbing reality. Otherness, the simple fact of being different in some way, has come to be defined as in and of its self evil. Miroslav Volf contends that if the healing word of the gospel is to be heard today, Christian theology must find ways of speaking that addresses the hatred of the other. Reaching back to the new Testament metaphor of salvation as reconciliation, Volf Proposes the idea of embrace as a theological response to the problem of exclusion. increasingly we see that exclusion has become the primary sin, skewing our perceptions of reality and fear and causing us to react out of fear and anger to all those who are not within our ever narrowing circle. In light of this, Christian's must learn that salvation comes, not only are we reconciled to god, and not only as we learn to live with one another but as we take the dangerous and costly step of opening ourselves the the other, of enfolding him of her in the same embrace with which we have been enfolded by god.

The book is in very good condition throughout.
