Since its beginning in the 1990s, Radical Orthodoxy has become perhaps the most influential, and certainly the most controversial, movement in contemporary theology.
This book offers an introduction to the Radical Orthodox sensibility through sermons preached by some of its most notable proponents, including Stanley Hauerwas, Catherine Pickstock and Graham Ward.
Accessible, challenging and varied, the sermons together help to suggest what Radical Orthodoxy might mean in practice.

"Those who know only the austere and abrasive dimension of Radical Orthodoxy’s reputation will find here food to make their soul grow and an invitation to participate in nothing less than the life of God. Those who believe the word is a sacrament will find themselves worshipping through this book. Those who don’t will need to think again." -- Sam Wells, Vicar, St Martin-in-the-Fields, London
"This collection of sermons delivered by representatives of different ecclesial traditions show-cases the art of homiletics. The ideas are expressed in edifying language and the sentences are crafted with due attention given to their rhythm so that the congregation is offered some ideas for reflection that are not only true and good but beautiful as well." -- Tracey Rowland, University of Notre Dame (Australia) and International Theological Commission
