From wealth creation to wealth distribution and social ethics, from urban mission to religious studies and psychology the work of John Atherton was breathtaking in scope and variety. Unifying all of his work, however, was a concern with engaging the work of theology with wider society.
With contributions from some of the leading lights in public theology today, this book offers not only an appreciation of John Atherton's work within a prodigiously large array of disciplines, but also an attempt to ask `what next', taking his work forward and considering where the future of public theology might lie. John Atherton's last published article is also reproduced.

Christopher R. Baker is William Temple Professor of Religion and Public Life at Goldsmiths University London and Director of the William Temple Foundation. Elaine Graham is Grosvenor Research Professor of Practical Theology at the University of Chester.
'John Atherton’s work has served as beacon to many in the church, academy and wider world. Prescient, pastoral and probing - and whether writing economics, politics or business - Atherton’s work has stood out as one the very best exemplars of public theology in recent times. His writing represents a natural theological successor to William Temple’s legacy, and as such, will continue to serve the cause and hope of public theology for the foreseeable future. Christopher Baker and Elaine Graham have assembled a rich, wise and searching body of contributors, whose essays continue to grapple with Atherton’s agenda. Namely, making sense of theology as a public discourse for the re-shaping of society – and not merely some internal language to be spoken by Christians alone. This book has urgency and poise, coupled to wisdom and application. It is one the very best contributions to public theology to have emerged in recent years.' -- Martyn Percy, Dean of Christ Church, Oxford
