"Christian theology is a hair's breadth away from nihilism." ~ John Milbank
John Milbank is perhaps the most prolific British theologian alive today. His 1990 book Theology and Social Theory laid the theoretical groundwork for Radical Orthodoxy - a postmodern theology that reacts against the liberalisation of Christian in the modern era.
Milbank is truly an inter-disciplinary thinker. His work often spans theology, philosophy, social theory, politics and aesthetics and he has recently collaborated with Slavoj Zizek on several books. John Milbank will bring a wealth of knowledge to debates on democracy, community and tradition.
"John Milbank is unquestionably among the most sophisticated voices in the whole world of modern theology" ~ Rowan Williams
