260 Book Reviews / Journal of Reformed Theology 4 (2010) 241-265 Craig Hovey, Nietzsche and Theology , T&T Clark, London 2008, 173 pp., $21.95 (ISBN 9780567031525). A book that pays attention to Nietzsche’s meaning for theology is more than welcome. Despite expositions on Nietzsche by Jüngel and the Dutch theologian Miskotte, theolo- gians are still passing over Nietzsche. A monograph on Nietzsche and theology had not been published untill now. What does Craig Hovey (who teaches theology and ethics at Fuller Theological Semi- nary) oﬀer us in this book? Hovey shows us the most important items of Nietzsche’s phi- losophy. Even so, his book has no intention to be an introduction to Nietzsche’s philosophy but is an eﬀort to integrate his basic views in theology. Hovey pays attention to ﬁve items: Nietzsche’s epistemology (ch. 2), Nietzsche’s cultural philosophy (ch. 3), the problem of history (ch. 4), his view of politics and society (ch. 5) and God’s existence (ch. 6). That is a lot of themes to discuss in 150 pages. Hovey motivates his choice by arguing that these themes ‘are perhaps more squarely within the Christian theological tradition or at least have closer ties to biblical themes’ (10).
