Item Description...
Overview
Gilkey's latest work takes the measure of the current American religious and cultural crisis, assesses recent theological responses to it, and shows how these illumine our understanding of the ongoing creationism controversy. Throughout, Gilkey articulates a faith-stance responsive to the contemporary world of radical pluralism and moral uncertainty-without retreating to simplistic dogmatism. Gilkey gauges the legacy of such key figures as Paul Tillich, Reinhold Niebuhr, and Karl Barth for our current situation. Long a crusader against creationism, "creation science," and the Religious Right, Gilkey shows plainly how the latter is neither religious nor right but is symptomatic of larger unanswered challenges of modernity. Gilkey's vision of a "blue twilight," in which light fights with dark in religion and culture, stands as a stark reminder of what is at stake in the future of American religious life.
