Nathan Scott's Literary Criticism and Fundamental Theology reexamines the pioneering contribution of Nathan A. Scott, Jr. to the field of theology and literature. It both recalls Scott's achievement and suggests its continuing value by focusing on the question of Scott's method. Rather than following the traditional interpretation of Scott as a literary critic employing Paul Tillich's theology of culture, this book proposes that Scott's work is best understood as a form of fundamental theology. In doing so, it suggests that Scott's work models ways in which literary texts may be appropriately incorporated into theological discourse.
