Nietzsche and Theology by Craig R. Hovey


Nietzsche and Theology by Craig R. Hovey

This title presents a look at how Nietzsche's most generative and provocative ideas are also deeply theological and continue to have relevance in teaching Christians how to be Christians in the world today.Over a century ago, Nietzsche famously declared the death of God, but this has hardly kept Christian theologians from making positive use of this 'master of suspicion'. Nietzsche and Theology displays how his most generative and provocative ideas are also deeply theological and continue to teach Christians how to be Christians in the world in which they find themselves. Hovey highlights the constructive contributions that can emerge from receptively meeting Nietzsche as modernity's philosophical other. Unchained from resenting Nietzsche's 'philosophical hammer', such encounters will surely reward those who journey into the far country of Nietzsche's Christianity. Nietzsche and Theology is ideally suited to students in theology and professional theologians who have a working knowledge of philosophy and philosophical theology, but who have not faced Nietzsche in theological debate or grappled with him as a specific resource.


Mention -Book News, February 2009 Mention --Book News, February 2009 Mention Book News, February 2009 'Hovey's treatment of Nietzsche is sympathetic, serious and challenging; it provokes and deserves respect and attention.
