This is a collection of writings of one of Britains most prominent theologian and thinker. Donald M. MacKinn has been one of the most important and influential of post-war British theologians and religious philosophers. Generally eclectic, frequently allusive, usually intellectually generous, persistently richly challenging and always astonishingly erudite, he had a significant impact on the development and subsequent theological work of the likes of Rowan Williams, Nicholas Lash, David Ford and John Milbank. A younger generation largely emerging from Cambridge, but with influence elsewhere, has more recently brought MacKinn's rmally occasionalist writing to a larger audience worldwide where it is beginning to receive teworthy attention. In this collection several of MacKinn's most outstanding papers t yet published in book format is collected together with an Editorial Introduction by a former student of one of MacKinn's own students. They range from his reflections on theology as educational, the nature of moral reasoning, considerations of ecclesial practice, dogmatics and hope. Here is ather reminder of MacKinn's intellectual brilliance.
