Theology After Liberalism free pdf This Reader brings together texts which articulate or debate with the mode of theology most commonly identified as "post-liberal". 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 beyond 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 'post-liberal' theologians. Second, there are readings, which treat issues of the methods, norms and sources of theology. Third, there are critiques of 'post-liberal' theology from a variety of perspectives. Each reading is introduced and contextualized by the editors.Part one of the volume introduces the book with two substantial editorial essays. Part two contains readings which treat major doctrinal areas as they have been handled by 'postliberal' theologians. The readings in part three treat issues of the methods, norms and sources of theology. Part four comprises critiques of 'postliberial' theology from a variety of perspectives. The volume's Afterword concludes with the profoundly influential work of George A Lindbeck, which did so much to stimulate debate. Each reading is introduced and contextualized by the editors.
