A conceptual survey of 19th-century theology and its relation to philosophy, natural science and social transformations

From the shadow of the Kantian critique it to the Oxford debates over Darwinism that shook the discipline to the core, and from the death of God to the rise of new Evangelical movements, 19th-century theology was fundamentally reshaped by both internal struggles and external developments.

This volume offers a unique history of nineteenth-century Christian theology. Focusing on themes and problems rather than figures and great texts, the authors renew our understanding of theology. This volume is not merely for theologians, but philosophers, political theorists, and all those interested in how ideas shape our world.
Anthony Paul Smith, La Salle University
An enormously welcome entry in modern historical theology. This volume of essays – organised not in terms of prominent figures and movements, but rather around critical concepts that became key sites of contestation in the nineteenth century (and remain so today) – will long prove an invaluable resource for understanding the conditions under which Christian theology ‘attained modernity’.
Joel D. S. Rasmussen, University of Oxford
