Book Review: Murray A. Rae, Editor, Critical Conversations:
Michael Polanyi and Christian Theology

Polanyi’s interest in Christianity and the interest of many Polanyians in Christianity is intriguing,
although some have found it disconcerting. Polanyi surprises many with his references to
Augustine, St. Paul, the Christian scheme of Fall and Redemption, etc. Rae’s collection of essays
adds to a considerable literature on Polanyi’s ideas in relation to Christianity. But Christianity
is not one dimensional, as the essays here clearly demonstrate. The nine authors, many familiar to
Polanyians, discuss an array of topics, and my brief comments, which often use the authors’
words, mention only a few elements of these interesting essays.
