Arne Rasmusson covers a broad range of central issues in political theology, including ecclesiology, hermeneutics, the theological interpretation of modernity, and ethical and political theory. He also discusses the social and political viability of the theologies of Moltmann and Hauerwas and the ecclesial practices they presuppose.Through an innovative discussion of the relationship between church and society and an exposition of Jurgen Moltmann's thought, Rasmusson advances the current discourse in political theology. He refines his argument by filtering Moltmann's theology through an exploration of Stanley Hauerwas's theological politics.Reviews"The Church as Polis is a significant contribution to contemporary discussions on public theology and the relation between religion and politics."--Francis Fiorenza, Harvard University"This is a wide ranging and competent work that gives many insights into the theology of its two main 'characters,' Moltmann and Hauerwas."--Pro Ecclesia"This is a challenging, acute, revealing and, at times, immensely creative monograph. Rasmussen has tackled two of the icons of modern Reformed theology, Jergen Moltmann and Stanley Hauerwas, and he has done so positively and intelligently by refusing to condemn the 'failings' of his chosen subjects. ... This is an admirable study ... but it is also an impressive theological argument ... and as such should be ready by anyone concerned with the role of ecclesiology in modern theology."--Reviews in Religion and Theology
