Item description for Theology After Liberalism: Classical and Contemporary Readings (Blackwell Readings in Modern Theology) by John Webster & George P. Schner...
Overview This Reader brings together texts which articulate or debate with the mode of theoogy most commonly identified as "postliberal." It provides an introduction to this major contemporary theological option for students of systematic theology. The wide sampling of theological writing represented here seeks to move beyod the dominant conventions of modern theology, by retrieving aspects of the classical Christian tradition and exploring its potential for creative and constructive theology in the modern context. The volume, introduced by two substantial editorial essays, is divided into three sections. First, there are readings which treat major doctrinal areas as they have been handled by "postliberal" theologians. Second, there are readings which treat issues of the methods, norms and sources of theology. Third, there are critiques of "postliberal" theology from a variety of perspectives. Each reading is introduced and contextualized by the editors.
Publishers Description Employing a mode of theology best described as post liberal, this text is not a general reader in theological method, but a more focused collection of texts which articulate or debate with the mode of theology identified by Hans Frei as Type Four in his Types of Christian Theology. It should therefore be useful to sudents studying courses in theological method and post linberal theology.
