This volume provides in clear and non-technical language a systematic framework within which to understand and assess some of the important components in the current reformations in religious thinking. Based on the work of Abraham Heschel and Martin Buber (Jewish theologians), Terence Fretheim (Hebrew Scripture scholar), Sally McFague, Wendy Farley, and other feminist theologians, Jurgen Moltmann (liberation theologian), Karl Barth, Emil Brunner, Reinhold Neibuhr (neo-orthodox theologians), and others, it also then develops a covenantal theology to reshape our thinking about the nature of sin and redemption.
