How far can you wander from classic, creedal orthodoxy and still be considered "Christian"? That's Robert E. Olson's query as he examines the liberal theology that's permeated mainline and progressive circles. Sifting through its central beliefs, relationship to classic liberalism, and how it connects with and contradicts traditional faith, Olson warns against passive acceptance without careful consideration of the consequences.

Liberal Christian theology is a big topic in today's churches and seminaries. But what does liberal theology really mean and why is it so controversial? What does it actually believe about truth, Scripture, and Jesus Christ? And where does it lead?
The term "liberal theology" is often misinterpreted, confused with a set of loose ideologies within the Christian faith and sometimes rallied behind by genuine Christians who are simply concerned about modern social justice issues. It's also been wrongly leveled against churches and even entire denominations that don't adhere to the tradition of liberal theology.
Against Liberal Theology, is written in a direct and conversational tone that makes sense of this theological movement by:
Sincere and to the point, professor and theologian Roger E. Olson is not interested in grinding axes. He openly admits to frustration with fundamentalist Christianity and explains why. But he warns that true liberal theologymore concerned with making Christianity palatable to the modern mind than it is committed to biblical integrityisn't the right alternative to the cultic tendencies of fundamentalism and has little in common with classical, biblical Christianity.
Against Liberal Theology is perfect for Christians on any side of a cultural debatefor those who consider themselves progressive or conservative or something in between.
It's always unpopular to be against anything. But in order for Christianity to be anything, it has to stand against some things. If Christianity is compatible with anything and everything, it is nothing.
