Abstract

Engaging variously with the legacy of Paul L. Lehmann, these essays argue for a reorientation in Christian theology that better honors the formative power of the gospel to animate and shape doctrine and witness, as well as ethical and political life. The authors explore key themes in Christian theology and ethics - forgiveness, discernment, responsibility, spirituality, present day tasks of theology and the role of faith in public life - making plain the unabated importance of Lehmann's work at this juncture in contemporary theology. The internationally recognized contributors draw crucial connections between the gospel of reconciliation, the form of Christian theology and witness, and the challenges of contemporary ethical and political reflection. This book demonstrates why this close friend of Dietrich Bonhoeffer, and the author of "Ethics in a Christian Context" and "The Transfiguration of Politics" continues to influence generations of theologians in both the English speaking world and beyond.
