Relational Theology: A Contemporary Introduction (hereafter RT) is a collection of very brief essays written by a sizable group of diverse scholars on a wide variety of subjects related to "Relational Theology." As Thomas Jay Oord, one of the book's editors, explains in the introduction, Relational Theology is an umbrella term that covers a broad spectrum of theologies that are all related to one another by their common values of relationship, freedom, and love. Examples of Relational theologies include, but are not limited to:

  • missional theologies
  • feminist and/or womanist theologies
  • Pentecostal and/or charismatic theologies
  • liberation and/or postcolonial theologies
  • Wesleyan theology
  • process theology
  • open theology
  • Arminian and/or holiness theologies
  • trinitarian theologies

I must admit, in addition to the table of contents, this list made me very excited to begin reading this book. Much of the most courageous Christian scholarship being produced today falls into one or more of these categories.
