Reviews - What do customers think about Liberal Theology: A Radical Vision?

Short, interesting, and useful  Jun 14, 2007
Hodgson has written a useful, much needed little piece on the importance of traditionally liberal theology for American Christianity. It is split into three parts: the first, a defense of why liberal theology is superior to the dominant theologies of late: radical orthodoxy, fundamentalism, and postliberalism; the second, a utilization/reinterpretation of Hegel which grounds his thoughts; and the third, a brief description of how liberal theology might engage a society whose once liberal values are in rapid decay.

The value of this book lies in its call to validate liberal theology in an era that has discarded it. Hodgson offers compelling reasons to think that liberalism is a stable, thoughtful, coherent, and at least biblically derived theology. He uses a wide range of contemporary thinkers to justify his claims, and synthesizes it all in a tight, driving narrative.

The final part of the book was the only part I found disappointing. While Hodgson does a nice job in summarizing liberation theology and its relationship to liberalism, he somehow gets entangled in the liberal ideology so prominent in America today. It seems that his argument might be longer lived, and his purpose better achieved, if he left specific political and social concerns veiled in theological nuance.

Nonetheless, it's a quick, enjoyable read from one of America's prominent theologians.
