Item description for Doing Theology in Today's World: Essays in Honor of Kenneth S. Kantzer by John D. Woodbridge & Thomas Edward McComiskey...
Overview This volume focuses on a central question: What does a person need to know for developing a theology? In other words, this book will not only answer objections lodged against the study of theology, but will explain to students, pastors, and laypersons alike what a theologian actually does. It will also present different approaches to the study of theology and review the present status of theological reflection in various Protestant, Orthodox, and Roman Catholic traditions. In the first section of the book evangelical Protestant scholars describe the contributions various disciplines make to the study of theology. In the next section, evangelical Protestant scholars explain the distinctives of their approaches to doing theology. In the third part, theologians who do not identify with evangelical Protestant convictions seek to explain the distinctives of their approaches to doing theology. In the final section, Dr. Kantzer provides a summary analysis of how he does theology and interacts critically with a number of essays in this volume.

Reviews - What do customers think about Doing Theology in Today's World: Essays in Honor of Kenneth S. Kantzer?
A solid collection of theological essays. Mar 18, 2007
This book contains an impressive number and range of essays in honor of Kenneth S. Kantzer. The largest number are by evangelicals, but essays by Gordon Kaufman, Rosemary Radford Ruether, John Meyendorff, and John H. Yoder shows the incredible diversity of approaches. My own favorite is the essay by Kevin J. Vanhoozer on relating faith and reason in doing theology. This is a great collection to get a quick overview of diverse contemporary theological methods.
