Traces of Liberality
©2006 Edited Collection 318 Pages
Series: Religions and Discourse, Volume 26
This collection of essays reflects constructive engagement with a liberal and progressive programme of Christian theology over a number of years. The themes are diverse – from the renewal of Christology and the ecumenical dimensions of ecclesiology to human rights and emancipatory theology. Particular theologians, from Schleiermacher and Juengel in continental Europe, to Baillie and Lampe in the UK, are discussed. The preface and epilogue underline the urgent need for new and viable contemporary liberal theological voices to re-imagine the doctrinal, ethical and political implications of the Christian gospel. The final piece offers a progressive perspective on the sexuality debate in the churches.
