Theologians have responded in many different ways to the challenges posed by theories of postmodernity. Kevin J. Vanhoozer addresses the issue directly in an introductory survey of what "talk about God" might mean in a postmodern age. The book offers examples of different types of contemporary theology in relation to postmodernity, and examines the key Christian doctrines in postmodern perspective. Leading theologians contribute to this informative Companion.

'... the outline of various types of post-modern theology, including 'post-liberalism', 'radical orthodoxy' and the impact of post-modern thought on feminist theology is interesting.' Christian Marketplace 'This much-needed volume is a valuable guide through the often-murky waters of postmodern theology.' Calvin Theological Journal '... arguably the most significant collection ... It gathers together contributions from leading Christian theologians and philosophers of religion - including Venhoozer himself, Graham Ward and Mary McClintock Fulkerson - to consider the challenges and opportunities offered by postmodernity to theology ... This collection seems to be predominantly aimed at students of theology and the philosophy of religion ... but there is much here to think about for anyone working in the fields of continental philosophy of religion and theology ... Graham Ward's 'Deconstructive Theologies' offers a characteristically penetrating account of the promise and threat of deconstruction for theology ... Mary McClintock Fulkerson is given the unenviable task of surveying Feminist theologies in one short essay but she effortlessly meets it in a clear and constructive account which will serve as an excellent introduction to students entering this rich and varied field for the first time ... Kevin Vanhoozer's own excellent contribution explores the impact of postmodern thought and Derridean deconstruction in particular on scriptural exigesis ... I hope it goes without saying that Postmodern Theology is an extremely significant contribution and - despite my reservations - arguably the only really indispensable publication in the field for teachers and students this year.'
