-Publisher

A stinging critique of mainline Protestant seminaries and denominational structures by a highly regarded insider. Formerly a crusading liberal, Oden calls for a return to Christianity's creedal roots, exposing those obstacles that now stand in the way. Raises a number of troubling points.
-Publisher

Requiem: A Lament in Three Movements is a post-liberal critique of the mainline liberal ecclesiastical establishment, especially the theological seminaries and church bureaucracies. Thomas C. Oden identifies the failure of contemporary theological education and its accompanying ideology, maps out the ultra-liberalization of church bureaucracies and special-interest politics, and calls for a return to classical Christian theological roots and categories. Broadly ecumenical and written from the perspective of a former fellow traveling liberal, Oden's direct, frank, and provocative approach articulates concerns many church people - leaders, pastors, teachers, seminarians, and the faithful in the pews - hold. Requiem promises to be one of the most controversial and important contributions to the debate about the nature and calling of the church in the last half of the last decade of this millennium.
