This chapter sets out a distinctive perspective on natural theology that is informed by a more synthetic account of the general tendencies of continental philosophy. It first discusses definitions of natural theology and pistic theology; Heidegger' s refusal of a natural theological voice; the relation of natural theology to recent developments in political theology; and natural theology as heir to the Platonic defence of theonomous morality. The chapter then examines a perspective on natural theology informed by the work of two influential American continental philosopher/theologians, John D. Caputo and Mark C. Taylor.
