  2. The Role of Death in Life. A Multidisciplinary Examination of the Relationship between Life and Death

    The Role of Death in Life. A Multidisciplinary Examination of the Relationship between Life and Death

    $29.95

    A Multidisciplinary Examination of the Relationship between Life and Death The relation between life and death is a subject of perennial relevance for all human beings--and indeed, the whole world and the entire universe, in as much as, according to the saying of ancient Greek philosophy, all things that come into being pass away. "In this book, the mutual implication of death and life is demonstrated from an astronomical level, in the emergence of human life from the death of stars, to the molecular level where death enables the emergence of cellular life, through anthropological, philosophical, and theological insights, to the realm of medical care for the dying, where it is claimed that 'only theology can save medicine.' A profound and challenging book." --Andrew Louth, Professor Emeritus of Patristic and Byzantine Studies, Durham University, United Kingdom "How can Christians defend the place of natural death and the death consequent upon sin, while continuing to insist upon the undying character of true life as such and so the reality of resurrection? These penetrating essays by several of the leading theological thinkers of our times will powerfully help the reader to ponder these crucial matters of our contemporary mortality." --John Milbank, Research Professor and Director of the Centre of Theology and Philosophy, University of Nottingham "For once, it is not a polite exaggeration to say this is a 'unique' book. The breadth of disciplines represented and the originality of the analysis offered make it an exceptional contribution to current debates. Anyone who thinks the dialogue between theology and the natural sciences is, at best, an exchange of uncomprehending platitudes, will have to think again in the face of these expert, challenging essays, which show that an orthodox theology of our embodied condition can be culturally transformative." --Rowan Williams, Master of Magdalene College, Cambridge "A substantive, important, and provocative volume. The insights of the essays it encompasses will richly reward the reader." --H. Tristram Engelhardt Jr., Professor of Philosophy, Rice University, Professor Emeritus, Baylor College of Medicine Learn More
