Product Description

What role does Scripture play in the task of the church? What value do past theological constructs offer today? How does culture effect theological reflection? For that matter, of all th diverse ways Christian belief is expressed, what makes and of them "Christian."

In Beyond Foundationalism Stanley Grenz and John Franke move past the absolute foundationalism of the Enlightenment and modern period to offer a revolutionary method for doing theology in the postmodern age. Writing to both mainline and evangelical traditions, they propose a new method that views theology as arising out of the interplay of the spirit which speaks authoritatively through the biblical text; tradition, which provides a historical interpretive framework; and culture, which gives context for constructive theological reflection. This method, they argue fosters a Christian theology that embodies a Trinitarian structure, utilizes the faith community as the organizing principle or integrative motif, and feature eschatological orientation.
