An Eerdmans Reader in Contemporary Political Theology gathers some of the most significant and influential writings in political theology from the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. Given that the locus of Christianity is undeniably shifting to the global South, this volume uniquely integrates key voices from Africa, Asia, and Latin America with central texts from Europe and North America on such major subjects as church and state, gender and race, and Christendom and postcolonialism. Carefully selected, thematically arranged, and expertly introduced, these forty-nine essential readings constitute an ideal primary-source introduction to contemporary political theology—a profoundly relevant resource for globally engaged citizens, students, and scholars.

The focus is contemporary rather than historical, it is comprehensive rather than specialized, but most of all, it is the occasion to get acquainted with political theology as a broad movement which is not confined to Europe and North America. All in all, then, it certainly deserves its place in my shelf — but most of all in the classroom.
