Reformed Catholicity: Renewal through Retrieval serves as a manifesto for a catholic and Reformed approach to Christian dogmatics that self-consciously seeks theological renewal through catholic retrieval. This ethos permeates scriptural exegesis and dogmatic reasoning, and this book locates that approach methodologically vis a vis a number of similar projects in the last two generations of biblical, historical, and theological scholarship: the nouvelle theologie's emphasis on ressourcement, the focus upon reception history in the guilds of biblical scholarship and the history of Christianity, Daniel Williams's evangelical ressourcement of "the great Tradition", the Radical Orthodoxy movement, Donald Bloesch's emphasis on consensual Christianity within the world of mainline American theology, Thomas Oden's approach to paleo-orthodoxy and its role in the proliferation of publications regarding ancient and classical resources fortoday's church, the recently publicized movement known as Ressourcement Thomism, etc. This book offers a sketch of a manifesto for doing theology in the catholic conversation and argues that Reformed distinctives take us deeper into the catholic tradition rather than away from it.
