An exciting contribution to the Radical Orthodoxy series, Graham Ward fills a major void in theological literature by offering the first detailed theological response to urban living for thirty-five years.

Cities of God Summary

Cities of God by Graham Ward

Cities of God traces urban culture of north America and Western Europe during the 1970s, to ask how theology can respond to the postmodern city. Since Harvey Cox published his famous theological response to urban living during the mid-1960s very little has been written to address this fundamental subject. Through analyses of contemporary film, architecture, literature, and traditional theological resources in Augustine and Gregory of Nyssa, Graham Ward lays out a systematic theology which has the preparation and building of cities as its focus. This is vital reading for all those interested in theology and urban living.

Cities of God Reviews

'The book is ... a truly major achievement, the most sustained constructive piece of work by an Anglican theologian for many years.' - Scottish Journal of Theology

'There is a humility here which acknowledges that "our dogmatisms speak more about our fears than our aspirations." No liberal could have put it better.' - Revd Steven Shakespeare, Church Times

'With Cities of God, which is a worthy postmodern sequel to Harvey Cox's The Secular City (1965), Graham Ward establishes himself as one of the most engaging and visionary theologians of his generation.' - Stephen H. Webb, Reviews in Religion and Theology
