Item description for THINKING THE FAITH by Douglas John Hall...

Overview
This work is an attempt to think through the faith in ways that is relevant to North American Christians. Hall states that world-wide currents are at work in North America altering the face of Christendom. The Christian hope lies in the direction, not of ignoring or minimizing these influences, but of facing them forthrightly and seeking the positive meaning that they may contain for serious faith.

Reviews - What do customers think about THINKING THE FAITH?

Thinking about "thinking the Faith"  Aug 19, 2000
I read "Thinking the Faith" while on vacation and though the beginning was slow-going, the book was great. Hall has a grasp of the contemporary problems confronting people of faith. His contention is that theological solutions created in Europe for European theological problems may not be and probably are not appropriate for 21st century Christians in North America (i.e. Canada and USA). He also believes that the faith community has abandoned "knowledge" to technocrats. I am looking forward to reading the 2nd and 3rd volumes - "Professing the Faith" and "Confessing the Faith".

Thoughts on 'Thinking the Faith'  Aug 19, 2000
'Thinking the Faith'' presents Hall's dialogue betwen revelation and reason. He accurately sums up the problems in North American (ie USA + Canada) which people of faith must confront, beginning with their abandonment of "knowledge" to a purely technical definition. This is an important book for Christians at the dawn of the 21st century. I finished it while on vacation and know that I will be able to use it with a lay group I mentor.
 
Barth for postmoderns  Apr 13, 2000
I first read this book when I lead a discussion of it with a large class in the Arvada United Medthodist Chruch. They found it both a challenge and too conservative for their taste. I am now leading a discussion of it with a smal mens class in Cortez Colorado. They are having much the same reaction. It is a kind of late 20th century revisit to Neo-orthadoxy. Or Barth in the Postmodern generation. Hall may or may not be too conservative but he does call us all to think the faith trough and not just go with the latest fad and heart vibrations.
