About "Transforming Post-Liberal Theology"
ransforming Postliberal Theology responds to George Lindbeck's seminal proposal for postliberalism in The Nature of Doctrine: Religion and Theology in a Postliberal Age (1984). Occasioned by new studies in the religious roots of pragmatic philosophy, Pecknold argues that postliberalism represents 'a new pragmatism' that rediscovers its theological and semiotic roots in Scripture. Testing this hypothesis, Pecknold assesses the book Lindbeck wrote, and the book critics read, to ask if there are good, immanent reasons for long-standing criticisms to remain. Pecknold proposes that problems readers have with postliberalism can be resolved through deeper engagements with Lindbeck's pragmatism.
