Promotional Information

Introduces narrative theology, and demonstrates how this theology is both orthodox and radical.


'Deftly Loughlin weaves his theological voices. He writes here, as always, with great skill, imagination and conviction ... Loughlin has a fertile and imaginative theological mind - the world is about to be swept back into the Word.' Graham Ward, Theology '... an excellent account of much of what is going on in contemporary theology, both British and American ... Whatever one's opinion on reading this intriguing and noteworthy book, it is one of the debates which will fuel British theology for the forseeable future.' Gareth Jones, Reviews in Religion and Theology 'Just when some might have thought that 'God's Story' and 'narrative theology' had become ritual cant, Gerard Loughlin has written a book that summarizes the issues from a new perspective, argues against standard objections, and advances the discussion in imaginative ways - imaginative not least because they are presented with such modesty ... Loughlin's book will be essential reading for all those interested in the bearing of biblical narrative on church and post-modern world ...'. James Buckley, Modern Theology 'Clear and informative presentations especially of the work of the Yale theologians serve the unfolding of a distinctive theological vision ... elaborated with force, clarity and sophistication.' Francis Watson, Scottish Journal of Theology ' ... an original and eloquent sized new step in the research program of postliberal theology.' William C. Placher, The Journal of Religion 'With this book Gerard Loughlin makes a welcome and important contribution. It is both a more theological and a more critical work than much earlier 'narrative theology'. Post-modern theory becomes, in the author's hands, a preparation for the gospel, and the gospel announced is one of promise and gift.' Janet Martin Soskice, University of Cambridge 'This is a very good book ... Deeply, sometimes movingly, Catholic in inspiration and sensibility, it will repay reading for years to come.' Fergus Kerr, The Tablet 'Telling God's Story is engaging and refreshing'. Stephen W. Need, Times Literary Supplement 'Gerard Loughlin gives us an extraordinarily instructive theology, redolent with the kind of nuance and profundity which are required by anyone who takes seriously the story of Jesus as God's anointed. He ranges widely across the contemporary intellectual scene, and brings an exciting and ingenious theological programme to life. I cannot recommend this book highly enough.' Stanley Hauerwas, Duke University '... an attractive presentation of the church in the postmodern world as a community which embodies and performs the story of Jesus, particularly in the eucharist, 'a narrative that enfolds the participants within the biblical story ...'. David Horrell, Expository Times
