Product Description

Is it possible to be more evangelical by being less conservative? Theologian Olson thinks so---and offers an exhaustive survey of critics and advocates to support his thesis. Describing the development of "a mood rather than a movement," he urges openness to doctrinal reform and recognizing truth in experience without abandoning orthodoxy or conformity to Scripture. 240 pages, softcover from Baker.

Publisher's Description

The community of evangelicals sometimes seems so broad as to defy definition, but theological conservatism has been one consistent marker. Now, says theologian Roger Olson, postconservatism is moving beyond conventional battles against liberalism and heresy to posit a dynamic and realistic approach. While conservatives strive to preserve tradition and protect orthodoxy, postconservatives urge openness to doctrinal reform without abandoning orthodoxy. Where differences exist between doctrine and Scripture, doctrine must be brought into conformity with the Word. Postconservatives want to free evangelical theology from its paradoxical captivity to rationalism and its obsession with "facts" so that it may recognize truth in experience and personal knowledge. Theologians, pastors, seminarians, and serious thinkers will find many depths to plumb in this exhaustive survey of critics, advocates, and fellow travelers on the evangelical journey.
