'A useful advance along the path of hermeneutical exploration.' Expository Times 'At the heart of Garrett Green's study, Theology, Hermeneutics, and Imagination: The Crisis of Interpretation at the End of Modernity, is a discussion of some intriguing possibilities contained within what he calls 'significant and positive parallels between Christian theology and postmodern philosophy' ... Two things in particular distinguish Green's book: first, its fresh account of Ludwig Feuerbach as the 'forgotten father of the hermeneutics of suspicion,' that is, as the mediator between Kant and the great masters of doubt who follow him, Marx, Nietzsche, and Freud; ... second, its unusual restraint in dealing with 'suspicion' that allows for a more appreciative account than usual of the theological possibilities contained within it. In fact, these two issues are linked.' Perspectives in Religious Studies
