What role does scripture play in the task of the church? What value do past theological constructs offer today? How does culture affect theological reflection? In this book, the authors move past the Enlightenment foundational approach to offer a methodology for doing theology in a postmodern age. Writing for readers of all denominations, they propose a new theological method that uses three sources: the Spirit speaking authoritatively through the biblical text; tradition providing a historical interpretative framework; and culture as the context for constructive theological reflection. This method, they argue, fosters a Christian theology that acknowledges the whole of God (Father, Son and Spirit), takes full account of the experience of the faith community, and is future-oriented.
