Reviews - What do customers think about Doing Theology Today?

Doing Theology Today = Liberal Process Thought  Mar 22, 2001
Doing Theology Today is a mature explanation of Shubert Ogden's thought. In the book, Ogden lays out the task of theology and sets to work in developing a fully reflective understanding of the Christian witness. Ogden accepts the modern project and the turn to secularity. Thus, he sees theology as having two important criteria: appropriateness and credibility. Appropriateness refers to the importance of theology being in line with the "earliest apostolic witness." He sees the canon of Scripture as important however many passages need to be demythologized. Credibility refers to the importance of theology being credible by reference to the truth given by common human experience.

It seems as if this method determines Ogden's theology. He clearly must reject classical theism because it is not "credible." He must also reject the notion that Jesus was some type of special revelation; instead he asserts that Jesus was the re-presentation of the original revelation present in all of common human experience. He moves trough four sections: Theology of Theology, Theology and Christology, Theology of Religions, and Theology in Conversation. Throughout the book one sees the influence of A. N. Whitehead and process thought as Ogden uses process metaphysics to construe a theism consistent with his other positions.
