By Laurel Schneider
Laurel Schneider takes the reader on a bright trip from the origins of ''the good judgment of the One'' - only in the near past dubbed monotheism - via to the fashionable day, the place monotheism has more and more did not properly tackle non secular, clinical, and moral reports within the altering international. partly I, Schneider strains a trajectory from the traditional heritage of monotheism and multiplicity in Greece, Israel, and Africa throughout the Constantinian valorization of the common sense of the single, to medieval and glossy demanding situations to that common sense in poetry and technology. She pursues another and confident strategy partially II: a ''logic of multiplicity'' already resident in Christian traditions during which the complexity of existence and the presence of God can be larger articulated. half III takes up the open-ended query of ethics from inside of that multiplicity, exploring the results of this radical and practical new theology for the questions that lie beneath theological development: questions of belonging and nationalism, of the opportunity of love, and of solidarity. during this groundbreaking paintings of latest theology, Schneider exhibits that the only isn't really misplaced in divine multiplicity, and that during spite of its abstractions, divine multiplicity is practical and worldly, very unlikely finally to abstract.
