Theology as History and Hermeneutics
This book is a post-critical conversation with modern and postmodern theology. It focuses on the narrative of history and the task of hermeneutics as the means of validating faith as opposed to the verification-epistemology of modern rational objectivism. Paul Ricoeur's philosophy of testimony is preferred as a means of bridging the extremes of modern objectivism and postmodern subjectivism. The contributions of Karl Barth, Rudolf Bultmann, Marcus Borg, N. T. Wright, Jurgen Moltmann, Wolfhart Pannenberg, Gustavor Gutierrez, James Cone, Sandra Schneiders, James B. Cobb, Jr., George Lindbeck, Stanley Hauerwas, William Abraham, among others, are considered and evaluated.
