This study critically examines the postliberal project, with special reference to George Lindbeck, the qfounding fatherq of postliberalism. In an age of profound cultural change, is it feasible to locate the future of the Church and of the world on a consensus-building hermeneutic that dwells in the particularity of the Christian Scripture as its exclusive home? Seeing the theological task as a hermeneutical task founded upon the premise that truth is revealed in a dialectical way, the author provides an intelligible framework for dialogue with the postliberal school of thought. This dialogue, he argues, is ultimately determined by the overarching question of what it means to be Church. Towards a critical synthesis of the ecclesiological impact of this dialogue, the author offers a tightly argued and informative discussion on five pairs of key concepts: tradition and authority, Bible and de-Christianization, hermeneutics and revelation, religion and experience, doctrine and truth.JETS 35 (1992) 487-501. aquot;Theology and Experience.aquot; EuroJT 2 (1993) 65-74. aquot; An Evangelical Evaluation of Postliberalism. ...
