The Nature of Doctrine: Religion and Theology in a Postliberal Age

Front Cover
Westminster John Knox Press, Jan 1, 1984 - Religion - 142 pages
8 Reviews
This groundbreaking work lays the foundation for a theology based on a cultural-linguistic approach to religion and a regulative or rule theory of doctrine. Although shaped intimately by theological concerns, this approach is consonant with the most advanced anthropological, sociological, and philosophical thought of our times.
