The Quest for Plausible Christian Discourse in a World of Pluralities

The Evolution of David Tracy’s Understanding of ‘Public Theology’


Younhee Kim

This book critically examines David Tracy’s well-known methodology of fundamental theology, namely his revisionist model as developed in his Blessed Rage for Order (1975), together with his methodological shifts through the 1980s, 1990s and early 2000s. It explores how successful he has been in constructing a methodology for the public theological discourse that he deems so necessary. More particularly, this book asks how serviceable this methodology is for articulating Christian discourse in an intelligible and public way in the contemporary context of religious plurality.
Contents: The Methodological Exposition of David Tracy’s Fundamental Theology – The Key Structure of Tracy’s Revisionist Model – The Correlation of Human Experience and the Christian Tradition – The Question of God – The Shifts in Tracy’s Fundamental Theology after his Revisionist Model – The Question of God Reformulated.
