Theology between Church, University, and Society includes contributions to the international NOSTER conference "Theology between Church, University and Society," held in the Netherlands in June 2000. This volume is concerned with these three challenges: academic, religious and societal. In all of the contributions, the tension between descriptive research and normative theses or the relation between theology and society at large is discussed. Not only are there descriptions of the structures of theological institutions in the Netherlands, the USA, and South Africa but also of the relations between churches and theological institutions, and Vatican policy regarding theological faculties.Table of ContentsPrefaceIntroductionHendrik M.
