"Just when I was beginning to think that there are too many companion volumes in the world, I have read one that is pure delight. Political theology is a hot topic, and this book is required reading for it ... It is a book of books." Stephen H. Webb, Wabash College, Indiana "An excellent resource for both teaching and research, this anthology is recommended for every theology library." Daniel J. Kuntz, Brescia University, Owensboro "This is a very important, pioneering book, full of scintillating arguments and fresh insights. It is likely to redefine political theology for a new generation, and arouse a great deal of useful and vigorous debate. It will be an indispensible stimulus and resource for students and scholars concerned with the bearing of Christian theology on the political and public sphere." Duncan Forrester, University of Edinburgh "The strength of the collection lies in part two, a state-of-the-art summary of political theologies. The usefulness of companion, suitable for seminary libraries, is enhanced by an index of names and subjects and an index of biblical references." Timothy D. Lincoln Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary
