About-

This volume of essays centers on the theme of doing Christian theology in the present postmodern context, a consistent theme of the teaching of John D. Castelein. The work will celebrate and honor John's years of service by representing reflections of his teaching in the thought of his students and colleagues. The essays range over such topics as theological reflections on the postmodern philosophical themes, the relations between Christian theology and culture, the contributions of philosophical hermeneutics for Christian theology, and the challenges of engaging in ministry in a postmodern context. The seventeen contributors to the volume are former students and both present and former colleagues involved in various ministries, be they in a college setting or in a local church.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"John Castelein had a profound impact on my life. He brilliantly helped me learn to think about all of life from a biblical framework completely engaged with culture. Most importantly, he modeled for me what it meant to live from that perspective. I'm thrilled about these essays by former students and colleagues, which insightfully capture the legacy Dr. Castelein leaves for us all."
--Jud Wilhite, Senior Pastor, Central Christian Church

"These welcome essays, in honor of John Castelein, represent the energy of theological renewal among the Christian Churches/Churches of Christ. . . . This collection builds on the Stone-Campbell tradition's commitment to theology essentially as biblical interpretation in the context of the church, but does not hold back from exploring new territories not normally engaged in the earlier intellectual history of this tradition."
--Paul Blowers, Professor of Church History, Emmanuel Christian Seminary

"John Castelein has given his life to the service of the church, preaching and, since 1977, teaching theology at Lincoln Christian University and Seminary. . . . These essays, like the interests of the man, range widely over academic and ecclesiastical subjects."
--Ronald E. Heine, Professor of Bible and Theology, Northwest Christian University
