Overview
In this concluding volume of his magisterial trilogy, Gary Dorrien sustains his previous definition of liberal theology and his mixture of theological, philosophical, and historical analysis, while emphasizing the unprecedented diversity of liberal theology in the postmodern age. Dorrien argues that liberal theology has been in crisis for the past half-century, yet despite the crisis, and also because of it, it has also experienced a "hidden renaissance" of intellectual creativity. Liberal theology in the early twenty-first century is more diverse, complex, and marginalized than ever before in its history, he concludes, but its essential idea-creating a progressive, credible, integrative third way between orthodox over-belief and secular unbelief-remains as necessary as ever.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A MASTERFUL STUDY OF LIBERAL THEOLOGIY  Jul 5, 2007
Gary Dorrien has written an extraordinary work of scholarship, more felicitiously written than one ordinarily expects of so much involved historical material. He gives full and detailed discussions of various schools of liberal theology: Personalism, the Chicago school, the Vanderbilt theologians, Romans Catholic, feminist, and a wide range of many individual theologians. The work is made even more interesting by pertinent biographical information, giving personal location to their work. The evaluations include diligent research into reviews and reactions by colleagues and their responses. The work is also enlivened by reports of many persoanl conversations and responses.
The book seemed to be even-handed in its approach to different points of view. I could not sense Dorrien's personal stance, except that he was in the liberal camp as post-neoorthodox. I felt he did give a very generous amount of space to tracing the fortunes of the Chicago school. I was also impressed with the positive treatment he gave to Nels Ferre, of whom little has been heard in recent years. Dorrien's mastery of massive, difficult material makes one hope he will one day give us his own systematic take on matters theological.
As an M.Div. of Union Seminary, N.Y., in 1949, I have lived through the period covered by the book, and am impressed by its coverage. A few impressions: (1) the courageous endeavor of liberal theology to deal with the world of our time; (2) its extreme pluralistic character; (3) its orientation to the academy, rather than the church; (4) as a pastoral minister for 51 years, it gives me some idea of why the church has had such a struggle, and why it has been so stressful to try to be a "believer" in this period.

(The Rev.) C. Eugene Stollings
 
Dorrien is the best  Jan 23, 2007
I have yet to read this volume, but have read 3 previous works, all top notch. His incredible erudition is matched by his fluid writing, making him a joy to read.
