Jane Barter Moulaison Book Launch – June 10

University of Winnipeg’s Associate Professor of Theology and Church History Jane Barter Moulaison  launches her new book, Thinking Christ: Christology and Contemporary Critics (Augsburg Fortress), at McNally Robinson Booksellers, this Sunday, June 10, 2012 at 2:00 pm, (Grant Park in the Atrium).

Thinking Christ: Christology and Contemporary Critics
Contemporary theology often makes a virtue of deconstructing traditional claims about the person and work of Christ. Claims about the central significance of Jesus Christ appear to be oppressive, intolerant, and even violent. Jane Barter Moulaison engages several contemporary christological critiques of classical Christology and argues that such critical theologies are not undermined by the claim of Christ’s central significance but are rather radicalized by it. She ably re-reads the tradition that seeks to interpret Christ’s saving activity in light of several contemporary theological and political concerns. In so doing, she suggests that there are extraordinary resources available to those who long for political and material transformation precisely through the abandonment of spiritualized answers to Jesus’ question: “Who do you say that I am?”

Jane Barter Moulaison is also the author of Lord, Giver of Life and editor of The Future of Theological Education in Canada. She is also a priest in the Anglican Church of Canada.
