Taking up the critique of theology found in the work of Heidegger, George Pattison argues for a model of thinking about God that would not be liable to the charge of `enframing' that Heidegger sees as characteristic of technological thinking. He constructs his case in relation to particular issues in bioethics, the place of theology in the university, the arts, and the contemporary experience of living in the city.

George Pattison (Lady Margaret Professor of Divinity, Oxford University)

George Pattison is Lady Margaret Professor of Divinity, Oxford University.

Technology does not deprive us of the right to think in non-technological ways, even to think about God. Pattison does not profess to say where such thinking will finally lead. Our thinking about God in the technological context will be indeed a thinking "about", a thinking that circles around the mystery of God, and offers wider horizons than seeing the world as a stock of goods...A timely and sobering book. John Macquarrie, Church Times
