American Protestant Christianity is often described as a two-party system divided into liberals and conservatives. This book clarifies differences between the intellectual positions of these two groups by advancing the thesis that the philosophy of the modern period is largely responsible for the polarity of Protestant Christian thought.A second thesis is that the modern philosophical positions driving the division between liberals and conservatives have themselves been called into question. It therefore becomes opportune to ask how theology ought to be done in a postmodern era, and to envision a rapprochement between theologians of the left and right.A concluding chapter speculates specifically on the era now dawning and the likelihood that the compulsion to separate the spectrum into two distinct camps will be precluded by the coexistence of a wide range of theological positions from left to right.ContentsPreface Introduction 1 Experience or Scripture: How Do We Know God? 2 Description or Expression: How Can We Speak about God? 3 Immanence or Intervention: How Does God Act in the World? 4 Epistemological Holism and Theological Method 5 Linguistic Holism and Religious Language 6 Metaphysical Holism and Divine Action Conclusion Index
