Summary
Beyond Secular Order is the first of a two-volume work that expands upon renowned theologian John Milbank's innovative attempt to understand both theology and modern thought begun in his previously published classic text Theology and Social Theory. -Continues Milbank's innovative attempt to understand both theology and modern thought begun in Theology and Social Theory ' considered a classic work in the development of systematic theology -Authored by one of the world's most influential and highly regarded contemporary theologians -Draws on a sweep of ideas and thinkers to argue that modern secularism is a form of Christian heresy that developed from the Middle Ages and can only be overcome by a renewed account of Christendom -Shows how this heresy can be transformed into a richer blend of religion, modernity and politics -Reveals how there is a fundamental homology between modern ideas about ontology and knowledge and modern ideas about political action, expressed in both theory and practice
