distinguishes between political theology, public theology, civil religion and liberation theology, also paying attention to the distinction between religion and theology. With political theology, a term coined by Carl Schmitt in the 1920s, we are concerned with the political aspects of a systematic discourse on what it is to believe in God from a Christian perspective.

Outlining Schmitts ideas as they were elaborated between 1922 and 1969 and their subsequent critical reception in theology, the authors engage with both those contemporary Left Wing thinkers who have re-appropriated Schmitt and the theologians who have critical debated with these thinkers.Having identified the theological lacuna that Schmitt did not distinguish between theology and metaphysics or even between theology and religion, the authors examine the theological use of political theology both in the German and English speaking worlds as the main foci of political theology as a theological genre.
