This book of essays hopes to show that there is an important place today for a modest and unsystematic theology, consisting of 'theological fragments' rather than some grand theory.These theological fragments arise from and relate to specific situations, problems, contexts and communities. Here Duncan Forrester asks: What do the practices of Christian worship have to teach us about ethics? How can a word of reconciliation be heard in Northern Ireland? How do Dachau and the Rwanda genocide affect how we understand the Church? Are the modern mass media a threat or an opportunity for Christian communication? Duncan B. Forrester is Emeritus Professor of Christian Ethics and Practical Theology in the University of Edinburgh, Scotland.
