Kathryn Tanner is undoubtedly one of the most important contemporary North American theologians; her work is hallmarked by its depth, precision, provocativeness, and grace. This volume celebrates the vision and breadth of Tanner’s unique contribution. Essays by established scholars, colleagues, and former students trace out the key loci and themes, from theological method, the Trinity, Christology, and creation to economics, environmental and social ethics, and politics, to generate constructive and ecumenical conversation that presents Tanner as an important, contemporary public theologian.

"This is an important collection: in rich and varied ways the essays engage with the work of Kathryn Tanner, situating, criticizing, illuminating, extending, appreciating. They are an invaluable aid in coming to terms with the most powerful mind currently at work in North American theology."

Karen Kilby | Durham University

"The depth and grace of Kathryn Tanner's publications have made her one of the most widely read and influential American theologians today, and the range of her interests—from traditional theological topics to economics, social ethics, cultural theory, politics, feminist theory—has made her a leading public theologian whose work calls for lively engagement. That is just what this illuminating collection of essays by fourteen distinguished theologians gives us."
