Beloved Community : Critical Dogmatics after Christendom Paperback / softback


An original, comprehensive system of theology especially apropos to the post-Christendom North American contextIn this scholarly work Paul Hinlicky transcends the impasse between dogmatic and systematic theology by articulating and arguing a single cognitive claim: God is the One who has determined to redeem the creation by the missions of his Son and Spirit. Deploying an unusual Spirit-Son-Father trinitarian scheme, Hinlicky treats the problem of the knowledge of God and the nature of the theological discipline, and he proceeds to carefully develop his system of theology through expansive, wideranging argumentation.

Each main part of his work includes discussion of the ecumenical convergences in doctrine gained over the last generation and exploration of interreligious dialogues, especially with Judaism and Islam.

Throughout the book, Hinlicky engages with other theologians -- particularly with Robert Jenson's Systematic Theology -- and concludes each major section with a discussion of an alternate perspective on the subject.
