Transforming Postliberal Theology

Transforming Postliberal Theology George Lindbeck, Pragmatism and Scripture C. C. Pecknold

Transforming Postliberal Theology responds to George Lindbeck's seminal proposal for postliberalism in The Nature of Doctrine: Religion and Theology in a Postliberal Age (1984). Occasioned by new studies in the religious roots of pragmatic philosophy, Pecknold argues that postliberalism represents 'a new pragmatism' that rediscovers its theological and semiotic roots in Scripture. Testing this hypothesis, Pecknold assesses the book Lindbeck wrote, and the book critics read, to ask if there are good, immanent reasons for long-standing criticisms to remain. Pecknold proposes that problems readers have with postliberalism can be resolved through deeper engagements with Lindbeck's pragmatism. Arguing that Augustine stands at the roots of a kind of 'scriptural pragmatism' appropriate to postliberalism, Pecknold shows that Christian theology has incarnational and trinitarian resources for the 'theo-semiotic' repair of entire traditions of inquiry without capitulating to pragmatic tendencies towards relativism, or postliberal tendencies towards sectarianism. Displaying the theo-semiotic influence of Augustine on Peter Ochs' rabbinic pragmatism, and in turn Ochs' influence upon Lindbeck, Pecknold reveals significant theo-political implications for the scriptural relationship between the Church and Israel, and through this relationship, rediscovers the scriptural mandate for the Church's responsibility for the suffering other. Transforming Postliberal Theology signals a rediscovery and development of postliberalism for a new generation of theologians and other thinkers who recognize the centrality of the Bible for the reformation of thought and action in the church and in the world.
