    My assignment in this hour is to give a critical review of an influential book by Anglican author N.T. Wright, the Bishop of Durham. The book is titled What Saint Paul Really Said. It’s a fairly thin paperback, fewer than pages, and although Wright is a prolific writer, best known and most influential because of his massive scholarly works, this little book—which is written in a simple. “The Doctrine on Which the Church Stands or Falls is a sterling contribution to a biblically informed, theologically deep, historically sensitive, and pastorally astute engagement with the doctrine of justification by faith alone—sola fide. Controversies past and present relating to the doctrine are deftly explored, whether it is the.

    Liberal theology, in its typical form, represents the attempt to approach religion from a rational perspective without denying or belittling the importance of religious experience and religious commitment. Versions of liberal theology can be found in all the great religions. This book is primarily. Liberal postmodernism includes theologians such as Mark Taylor, Thomas Altizer, Robert Scharlemann, Charles Winquist, David Ray Griffen and Don Cupitt.

When any discussion develops concerning Christianity and liberalism, it is crucial that one gives a proper definition of liberalism. The term liberal can mean anything from being free in one’s thinking to being a proponent of the latest fad in the realm of theology or any other ideology.

The term liberal shifts with the sands of time in as much as yesterday’s liberal may be considered. Liberation theology stresses the responsibility of Christians for the poor and oppressed. Based upon the perception of the dignity of the human person, created "in the image and.

God’s command was clear but Satan was making it unclear like liberal theologians who do not like being pinned down to the specificity of words in Scripture.

This is where that liberal mindset comes from. It is always dangerous to alter God’s Word either by addition or deletion (Deuteronomy 4: 2; Proverbs ; Revelation ).

As Gary Dorrien aptly explains in his authoritative 3-volume work, The Making of American Liberal Theology (Westminster Press, ), The essential idea of liberal theology is that all claims to truth, in theology as in other disciplines, must be made on the basis of reason and experience, not by appeal to external authority.

Liberal theology has always tended to obscure the nature of sin while Neo-orthodoxy has not made clear how redemption actually makes any difference in this life in this world. The clue to the reconstruction of Protestant Christian faith in our time is to recall to ourselves the fact that God, the Lord of life, is both Creator and Redeemer.

Read the New Testament from a biblical-theological perspective. Featuring contributions from nine respected evangelical scholars, this volume introduces each New Testament book in the context of the whole canon of Scripture, helping anyone who teaches or studies the Bible to apply it to the church today.

J ust when you thought liberal Protestantism was dead, Robert Bellah writes what is arguably the greatest work of liberal Protestant theology ever. Religion in Human Evolution: From the Paleolithic to the Axial Age is about the evolutionary roots of religious behavior.

It is a magnificent treatment of ancient human religiosity, with particular focus on the civilizations of Israel, Greece. A Theology for the Social Gospel is one of the most important works of Christian theology of the last one hundred years and the premiere catalyst for modern liberal Christian thought in the United States following the emergence of the social gospel movement.

Specifically he addressed how the Bible can be used in liberal Christian communities, advocating for its use as a sacrament – a means of experiencing God – not necessarily as a source for theology. His book Reading the Bible Again for the First Time is very helpful for understanding the liberal/conservative divide.

He also wrote often about. Exodus, Theology of. The disclosure of God in the Book of Exodus develops from a distant deity of an oppressed people in Egypt to one in intimate relationship with the people of Israel on their way to the promised land.

A theological goldmine results, impacting the concepts and theological ideas of the rest of the Old Testament. In my three-volume work, The Making of American Liberal Theology, I define liberal theology primarily by its original character as an attempt to create a progressive Christian alternative to established orthodoxies and a rising tide of rationalistic deism and atheism.

Pinnock (February 3, – Aug ) was a Christian theologian, apologist and author. He was Professor Emeritus of Systematic Theology at McMaster Divinity College.

Pinnock was born in Toronto, Ontario, Canada on February 3, He grew up in a liberal Baptist congregation. Pinnock once recounted that as a child he had Alma mater: Manchester University (PhD).While this perspective stands in continuity with earlier thinkers' commitment to mediation, Hodgson construes liberalism in terms of a broad range of themes, among which freedom, criticism, experience, vision, and cultural transformation bulk large.
