The advent of modern science brought deep challenges to traditional religion. Miracles, prophecy, immortal souls, absolute morality - all of these fundamental notions were challenged by the increasingly analytical and skeptical approach of modern scientists. One philosopher, Baruch Spinoza, proposed a new theology, rooted in a close analysis of the Bible, which could fit this new science and provide a sound basis for a social order. "Spinoza's Radical Theology" explains the mechanics and meaning of Spinoza's ideas and how they can inform the questions with which we still struggle today.

Review quote

"In this volume, Huenemann's style is candid and at times colloquial and even comical. He aims to show that Spinoza's thought is primarily theologically oriented, that it reconciles the virtues of naturalism and religion, and that this reconciliation is valuable for readers today. Included is a provocative conclusion assessing Spinoza's political thought and its relevance not only to Spinoza's ontology, but to the present day... Summing Up: Recommended." - J. N. Graham, Bridgewater College, CHOICE
