NEW INSTITUTES: A Primer of Practical Theology for 21st Century America

By Dennis Weiser

Religion & spirituality, Psychology & philosophy, Environment & nature, Science & technology | Paperback


A work of practical theology that reexamines and reinterprets key concepts and traditional theistic arguments of Western Christianity from the perspective of global economics and ecology. Refreshing and entirely original, NEW INSTITUTES takes seriously the eschatology of theologian Dietrich Bonhoeffer, harmonizing the sister religions of Judaism, Christianity and Islam with New Age Spirituality, and offers a modern interpretation of three key concepts of Christian theology: faith, death and resurrection. Weiser examines classical arguments of Anselm, Aquinas and Descartes, providing an appendix on logic and epistemology. Also considered: atheism, gods and goddesses, Calvinism, Jesus' mission, intelligent design, Christian ethics, science and religion. This is a work that clears the air of cant and drivel, consigning the evangelical bunk of Pat Robertson and Jack Van Impe, of religionist and anti-religionist alike, to the flames.
