The Tradition of Liberal Theology

Full Product Description

Many of the early apologists, including Justin Martyr and Origen, presented a defense of the Christian faith that sought to combine the message of the Gospels with respect for the kind of rationality associated with Socrates and his followers. Michael Langford argues that, despite many misunderstandings, the term "liberal theology" can properly be used to describe this tradition. Langford's Tradition of Liberal Theology begins with a historical and contemporary definition of "liberal theology" and identifies eleven typical characteristics, including a nonliteralist approach to interpreting Scripture, a rejection of original guilt, and the joint need for faith and works. Langford then gives vignettes of thirteen historical Christian figures who personify the liberal tradition. Finally, he explores some contemporary alternatives to liberal theology - fundamentalism, the Catholic magisterium, Karl Barth's theology - and presents a rational defense of the tradition of liberal theology.

The Tradition of Liberal Theology by Michael Langford was published by Eerdmans Publishing Company in March 2014 and is our 38071st best seller. The ISBN for The Tradition of Liberal Theology is 9780802869814.
