Smith has an exhaustive knowledge of his subject, but this "introduction" tries to do too much. He is equally concerned with his thesis that radical orthodoxy resonates with the reformed tradition in theology - Kuyper and Dooyeweerd - as much as he is with introducing the perspective of Milbank, Ward, Pickstock and company. His argument for the compatibility of RO and the reformed thinkers is interesting in itself as an intellectual exercise, but may be rather more than someone who is primarily interested in gaining a basic introduction to radical orthodoxy needs or wants.

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0801027357, Paperback)

Although God is making a comeback in our society, popular culture still takes its orders from the Enlightenment, a movement that denied faith a prominent role in society. Today, many are questioning this elevation of reason over faith. How should Christians respond to a secular world that continues to push faith to the margins?

While there is still no consensus concerning what a postmodern society should look like, James K. A. Smith suggests that the answer is a reaffirmation of the belief that Jesus is Lord over all. Smith traces the trends and directions of Radical Orthodoxy, proposing that it can provide an old-but-new theology for a new generation of Christians. This book will challenge and encourage pastors and thoughtful laypeople interested in learning more about currents in contemporary theology.
