About-

Every human being is a theologian. We have a curiosity about the ultimate context in which we exist. Theologians help us spell that out, and examine what faith is all about. The wide-ranging issues and questions this book addresses begin with the differences between Christianity and other religions, examine the relation between the Bible, science, and evolution, explore the role of religious experience in the birth of faith, and consider the contribution theologians like Paul Tillich, Friedrich Gogarten, Teilhard de Chardin, Jurgen Moltmann, and John Wesley can make to our thought today.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"Be it in discussing Paul Tillich's philosophical theology, or Teilhard de Chardin's theology of evolution, or the theology of hope or the theology of liberation, it was always worthwhile listening to the spirit of John Wesley coming to us powerfully through Ted Runyon's contributions. This . . . is a collection of ideas for present and future theology, and it is so well written that anyone with interest can understand it. Whoever thinks deeply can write clearly. Professor Runyon is one of them."
-Jurgen Moltmann
Professor Emeritus of Theology
University of Tubingen

"This treasure chest of theological gems is a great gift to all students of Christian divinity. The wide range of dialogue partners is impressive; the challenge that any theology is to promote the transformation of human lives is a healthy provocation. Runyon's concept of orthopathy rightly finds a strong resonance. His reflection on the diverse character of feelings and (religious) experience is indispensable for a critical analysis of Pietism, Methodism, and modern subjectivism."
--Manfred Marquardt
Professor Emeritus of Theology
United Methodist Theological Seminary
Reutlingen, Germany

"Exploring the Range of Theology is a most valuable compilation of articles by distinguished theologian Theodore Runyon . . . This volume demonstrates how the author has been bringing this Wesleyan perspective fruitfully to bear on a wide range of significant themes-biblical, theological, experiential, and ecological. Characteristically, the writing is both scholarly and eminently readable, and will be welcomed alike by colleagues, former students, and the general reader."
--Norman Young
Professor Emeritus
United Faculty of Theology
Melbourne, Australia

"In this remarkable collection of essays Theodore Runyon . . . shows us the tensions between mystical and revelational theologies as well as European secular theologies and liberation theologies . . . In all of these essays we see what we have come to expect from Runyon: theology on the cutting edge but responsible to the church, and an irenic and fair presence always seeking to create the community of trust in which theology can thrive."
--M. Douglas Meeks
Cal Turner Chancellor Professor of Theology and Wesleyan Studies
Vanderbilt University
Nashville, Tennessee
