This short, accessible and compelling book argues that an inclusive vision of God lies at the heart of Christian theology. Since the 1960s liberal theology has been driven by social justice issues and an ethic of tolerance. This has not been enough to check the rise of neoconservative theologies that now predominate in the Churches. Liberal theology now needs to stake a claim for the very identity of Christianity itself, showing how mainstream and inclusive values have always been a central strand of Christian thinking and represent the majority view.

Hugh Rayment-Pickard, Dr. Steven Shakespeare

Dr Hugh Rayment-Pickard is Area Dean of Kensington and author of Philosophies of History (Blackwell, 2000), Impossible God (Ashgate, 2003), The Myths of Time (DLT, 2004) and The Devil's Account (DLT, 2004). He is a regular columnist for The Church Times. Dr Steven Shakespeare is Anglican Chaplain at Liverpool Hope University and is involved with the Theology and Religious Studies Department. He wrote his PhD on Soren Kierkegaard and is author of Kierkegaard, Language and the Reality of God (Ashgate, 2001) and a number of scholarly articles.

'Its Introduction begins with what to some could be a challenge, "The Church should be inclusive because God is inclusive." The remainder of the book is devoted to fleshing out what inclusion means, in relation to key aspects of Christian belief: creation, revelation, Jesus, and the Church. The ideas expressed in this challenging and inspiring short text have given rise to the praxis-oriented volume of inclusive prayers.' -- Pat Pinsent
