George A. Lindbeck is one of the most influential and important postwar American theologians. His books and essays generate debate not only among his fellow Lutherans but also among many other Christians as well as Jews and students of religion in the academy more generally. This anthology presents key samples of Lindbeck's writing, especially for readers who may be unfamiliar with his books and articles.For each of these fourteen essays, editor James J. Buckley provides an introduction that sets the selection in context and points readers to what is at stake. Buckley has also contributed a substantial introduction to the book as a whole. Characterizing Lindbeck's thought as at once evangelical, catholic, and postliberal, Buckley shows how Lindbeck's Christian theology of "the church in a postliberal age" can be read as a "radical tradition."Enhanced by substantive endnotes and by a modern names index and a subject index, this timely volume provides a superb introduction both to Lindbeck's challenging thought and to the significant theological debates surrounding postliberalism.Table of ContentsIntroduction: Radical Traditions: Evangelical, Catholic and PostliberalJames J Buckley1.
