What does it mean to exist in complex relationships with machines? What insights can be offered to our understandings of these relationships by the theologically significant theme of ‘love’? What critical assessments can be made of our multiple uses of technologies in shaping our futures, by reflecting on our pasts?

Disquiet over the prevalence of social and economic individualism has a long history. In a world of mobile Capital and increasingly mobile people, communities of common tradition and locality appear to be under threat from the advent of a fragmented market society. Are these complaints against individualism justified? And crucially, how should Christians respond to them? Digging down into the substance of these questions, this project will consider the theological, liturgical and scriptural resources Christians have for understanding the notion of individualism in relation to issues of education, public life and the formation of democratic citizenship.

German Translation of True Religion

Kohlhammer press has recently published a German translation of Graham Ward's 2003 book, True Religion. Auf der Suche nach der wahren Religion: ReligionsKulturen 4, was translated by by Annerose Karkowski and was made available in December, 2008. Here's a brief abstract:

Vom religiösen Fundamentalismus bis zum Konsum religiöser Spezialeffekte im Holy Land-Abenteuerpark in Florida: Religion steht einmal mehr auf der Liste der wichtigsten Themen der Gegenwart. Doch wie verhält sich die gegenwärtige Wiederkehr des Religiösen zur Wahrheit der Religion? Ward skizziert die Genealogie der Suche nach der "wahren" Religion in der westlichen Welt. Er macht auf die Wandlungen dieser Suche im Wechselspiel mit den Entwicklungen des modernen Säkularismus, Liberalismus und Kapitalismus aufmerksam. Für die Gegenwart kommt er zu dem überraschenden Fazit: Zurück zur Theologie!

Graham Ward ist durch seine Beiträge zu Diskursen postmoderner Theologie international bekannt geworden und gilt als einer der kreativsten Theologen der Gegenwart.
