Theology

Being Prepared for Joy

The poet discusses "accidental theologies," Gerard Manley Hopkins, faith in literature, and what it's like no longer being the editor of Poetry magazine.

The Odd Couple

John XXIII had a program of updating; John Paul II was seen as bringing a degree of Restoration. How do their two very different legacies relate to each other?

An Unbelieving Age

That the death of God involves the death of Man is Christian doctrine, a fact of which Nietzsche seems not to have been aware.

Just-War Illusions

The just-war pacifist begins with a thoroughly realist assumption—that foreign policy is seldom if ever guided by rigorous just-war precepts.

Hauerwas on Hauerwas

Hauerwas divides Approaching the End into three parts dealing respectively with eschatology, the church, and what he calls “the difficulty of reality.”

Just Warriors, Unjust Wars?

Catholics have special reason to care about Jeff McMahan’s work on the question of just war and the debates it has sparked.

He Is Who Is

One of David Bentley Hart's deeper points is that the major theistic religions do indeed have something in common when they say “God.”

At Our Mercy

We have failed utterly to protect our planet and those who share it with us. For Christians, this constitutes a profound break with God.

Darwin’s Tree of Life

An exclusive excerpt from Elizabeth A. Johnson's forthcoming book, 'Ask the Beasts: Darwin and the God of Love.'

Seeing as God Sees

Karen Kilby, Luke Timothy Johnson, and Bernard G. Prusak reassess Terrence Malick's 'The Tree of Life.'

What Is He Up To?

Our problems with 'The Tree of Life' are likewise problems with Malick’s peculiar cinematic language.

'The Use of Cinema to Do Theology'

There is no mistaking Malick’s theological intentions, nor for that matter the academic credentials he possesses to make such an effort.
