1 Kristen Deede Johnson
Theology, Political Theory, and Pluralism: Beyond Tolerance and Difference
Cambridge University Press; Cambridge, UK; 2007; 0521870038 / 9780521870030; First Edition; Hardcover; Brand New; Brand New; 
How can we live together in the midst of our differences? This is one of the most pressing questions of our time. Tolerance has been the bedrock of political liberalism, while proponents of agonistic political thought and radical democracy have sought an answer that allows a deeper celebration of difference. Kristen Deede Johnson describes the move from tolerance to difference, and the accompanying move from epistemology to ontology, within recent political theory. Building on this ‘ontological turn’, in search of a theological answer to the question, she puts Augustine into conversation with recent political theorists and theologians. This theological option enables the Church to envision a way to engage with contemporary political society without losing its own embodied story and practices. It contributes to our broader political imagination by offering a picture of rich engagement between the many different particularities that constitute a pluralist society. • Introduces key movements in political theory to a theological audience • Offers a way for Christians to be engaged in a pluralistic society without losing their identity • Enables political theorists and theologians to better understand the framework of Augustine's thought and its relevance today Contents 1. Introduction; 2. The recent journey of liberal tolerance; 3. Beyond tolerance to difference; 4. Augustine and the theological turn; 5. Towards a theology of public conversation; 6. Conclusion.
