Reviews

“Stein’s book is a fascinating and engaging contribution to religious and theological studies that should provoke serious discussions. By examining Schleiermacher’s understanding of the self in relation to contemporary postmodernism, he overcomes the many sterile, abstract, and false contrasts between modern and postmodern theology.” – Francis Schussler Fiorenza, Stillman Professor, Harvard University
