Item description for Christian Theology: An Introduction to It's Traditions and Tasks (Christian Theology Texts) by Peter C. Hodgson & Robert H. King...

This book is a collaboration of contributors who met in a Workgroup on Constructive Theology at Vanderbilt Divinity School to create a work that would (1) introduce the student of theology to the Christian tradition by setting forth in brief compass its primary shape and substance and (2) to pose the issues for systematic theology in the present day. It presents from a liberal perspective an introduction to Theology in the following areas: Method, Scripture and Tradition, God, Revelation, Creation and Providence, Human being, Sin and Evil, Christ and Salvation, The Church, The Sacraments, The Spirit and Christian Life, The Kingdom of God and Life Everlasting and The Religions.

Reviews - What do customers think about Christian Theology: An Introduction to It's Traditions and Tasks?

Not Christian, hardly theology  Aug 10, 2006
This book was written by self-proclaimed liberal theologians. It is a compilation of essays by various contributors (all of whom discussed and commented on their peer's additions as well). The authors are stuck in a wholly modern (but creeping toward post-modern) mentality, and see little valuing in any of the traditional teachings and positions. All traditional teachings are thrown out the doors, and new ones are constructed to fill the gap.

If you are looking for an entirely modern theology that operates from modern philosophical foundations, this may be what you are looking for. But traditionalists will find this useful only to understand the way liberal theologians think and what they believe. For that purpose, and that alone, I found it good reading, for I had no real connection to liberal theology; having read this, I can honestly appreciate the author's positions and the presuppositions which led them there (which prejudices the authors are ready to point out are the most difficult part of making "new" theology). Reading this book will prepare the traditionalist for meaningful, positive arguments with his/her liberal counterpart.

Fortress Press ought to be ashamed for publishing this book. It does not give good Lutheran theology, much less solid orthodox Christian teaching.
