Summary

In this book, a rising young scholar critiques contemporary theological theory, asking what makes a Christian in the global century? Volpe looks at the main strands of theology in a clear and well-organised way, expanding and challenging accepted ideas of identity formation in Christianity, updating it with a new global focus. The author also reveals how sin affects the development of Christian identity in ways that have been largely unexplored. Rethinking Christian Identity engages contemporary Christian life in lively and clear prose that will appeal to both scholars and interested lay people.

Author Biography

Medi Ann Volpe is Lecturer in Theology and Ethics at Cranmer Hall, Durham University. She has published in Modern Theology, amongst other journals, and is co-editor of The Oxford Handbook of Catholic Theology (forthcoming, with L. Ayres).
