Efforts to evaluate the clinical encounter, in terms of autonomous agents governed by rationally justified moral principles, continue to be criticized. These essays, written by physicians, ethicists, theologians and philosophers, examine various models of the clinical encounter emerging out of these criticisms and explore the prospects they offer for theological and religious discourse. Individual essays focus on the reformulation of covenant models; revisions of principles approaches; and topics such as power, authority, narrative, rhetoric, dialogue, and alterity. The essays display a range of conclusions about whether theology articulates generally accessible religious insights or is a tradition-specific discipline.;Hence the volume reflects current debates in theology while analyzing current models of the clinical encounter. Students, professionals, and scholars who find themselves at the intersection of theology and medicine should find this book of value.
