Unlimited The Nature of Doctrine - by George A. Lindbeck
Apr 11, 2021 - 21:50 PM By George A. Lindbeck

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.

I found this book among the most helpful I ve read on post liberal narrative theology which is based on a cultural linguistic understanding of religion Very clearly articulated, Lindbeck is able to state his case so that those not particularly well versed in philosophy and or theology are able to follow the flow of his argument That s a skill not shared by many theologians Lindbeck presents narrative theology as a faithful alternative to the problematic cognitive propositional conservative and e [...]

I have been meaning to read this book for many years After all, Lindbeck is considered one of the central figures in what is known as post liberalism, and it has long seemed that I have an affinity for that perspective I intended to read it during my sabbatical in the fall of 2013, but ended up reading other materials I can say that I ve finally read it, and yes I do have an affinity for what he calls the cultural linguistic model of theology This model understands theology faith to be like lang [...]

It s important, if not ultimately persuasive The death of god theologians were doing their thing and every one thought they were hip Lindbeck published a small book with a rather boring title which subsequently shook the very foundations of neo liberal theology If Karl Barth delivered a mortal blow to liberalism, Lindbeck nailed the lid shut on the coffin.Lindbeck identifies three types of doctrinal theory propositionalist conservative , express symoblic liberal , and cultural lingusist Lindbeck [...]

Overall, I appreciate what Lindbeck is trying to do here Reframe theological discourse in such a way that it is possible to be relevant to contemporary concerns and culture while at the same time remaining faithful to historic Creedal Christianity In many ways, this is the primary struggle I have in my own theology and academic life as a Creedal Christian at an institution with little time for classical theological formulations But, I m not convinced that Lindbeck is entirely successful The actu [...]

Linkbeck s conclusions are the starting point for a lot of the theology books I have enjoyed reading Now I finally know some of the alternative views of understanding religion propositional and experiential expressive and I know what the liberal in post liberal means understanding all religion as starting from essentially the same human experiences that we all share I have seen the word intratextual thrown around in other places and know I finally know what that means too this quote sums it up n [...]

Working through this book for the second time I find myself asking the same questions that I brought to it six or seven years ago Lindbeck s proposal that we think of religions and religious doctrines in terms of cultural linguistic systems seems very helpful for understanding how religion functions now What it doesn t do, at least for me, is give an adequate explanation of religious origins I don t mean by that simply that he doesn t speak to how religions initially come into existence, but rat [...]

This was a very important book Not an easy read, but certainly the right place to start for a nice introduction to postliberal theology I read the 25th anniversary edition, which has a nice introduction For those who know, it goes without saying that you have to read George Lindbeck at some point in seminary Having read it once before, I found the second time through to be very helpful One of the few books I ve rated with 5 stars, mostly because of the book s influence.

Interesting ideas, but the socio cultural approach begs the question of objectivity Certainly, all religious experiences are seen through socio cultural lenses, but how does that make them re definable without introducing canceling subjectivity Either we ve been visited or we haven t We may misconstrue it through a cultural lens but the experience is nonetheless real or a fantasy not worth bothering over.

Lindbecks book is one of the defining works of post liberal theology, perhaps the most interesting theology to come about in the latter half of the 20th Century along with deconstructive theology and radical orthodoxy Lindbeck suggests that rather than a propositional conservative model or experiential liberal model a cultural linguistic model to doctrine Very fresh for those that has become disenchanted with the liberal conservative bifurcation.

This was a core textbook for a class in postliberal theology and imagination, an excellent class There s lots that I like about postliberal theology, despite the pop linguistics in this book, and the feeling it s not quite capturing the essence of faith It s somewhere decent to start, at any rate.

MUCH better the second time around Likely for two reasons reading it for a much better professor and I ve been in the field doing this kind of work Before it was theoretical, now it s right where and how I live as a pastor.

Provocative, accessible, ecumenical, pragmatic everything the classic primer on post liberal theology ought to be.

I should have read this book a couple of years ago It is truly seminal and illuminates much theology of the last 25 years.
