This book offers a comprehensive introduction to the thought of Chicago Divinity School theologian Bernard Meland (1871-1993). Tyron Inbody places Meland's theology within the development of the liberal tradition. He argues that Meland was a precursor of liberal developments in epistemology--especially in his view of how experience, language, and culture are related. Inbody explores the extent to which Meland was both representative and critical of process theology. He concludes with an assessment of Meland's contribution to postliberal theology. Inbody's work not only sheds light on the work of this important but neglected thinker, but is in its own right a contribution to empirical theology, theological epistemology, process theology, and the history of liberal theology in North America.Table of ContentsPreface 1 Fifty Years of Religious Inquiry: Meland as Embodiment of the Chicago School 2 Experience in the Radical Mode: Meland as an Epistemologist 3 Experience and Culture: Meland as a Theologian of Culture 4 Meland as a Process Theologian 5 Meland as "A Rebel Among Process Theologians" 6 Meland's Naturalistic Interpretation of God 7 Postliberal Empirical Realism Complete Bibliography of Published Writings Index
