This book of essays hopes to show that there is an important place today for a modest and unsystematic theology, consisting of 'theological fragments' rather than some grand theory.These theological fragments arise from and relate to specific situations, problems, contexts and communities. Here Duncan Forrester asks: What do the practices of Christian worship have to teach us about ethics? How can a word of reconciliation be heard in Northern Ireland? How do Dachau and the Rwanda genocide affect how we understand the Church? Are the modern mass media a threat or an opportunity for Christian communication? Duncan B. Forrester is Emeritus Professor of Christian Ethics and Practical Theology in the University of Edinburgh, Scotland.
"He (Duncan Forrester) has also inclued two recent articles on 'Good and Gay?' and the stunning 'The Church and the Concentration Camp'. Together they provide an important and accessible account of his various contributions to public theology...In the mean time Duncan Forrester's work remains significant and important. He has done more than most of us to keep public theology alive."--Sanford Lakoff "Theology "
