Scripture, Creed, Theology, by Robert L. Calhoun, edited and with an introduction by George A. Lindbeck
Historical theologian Robert L. Calhoun had mythic status as a lecturer at Yale Divinity School—even unbelievers attended his courses on Christian theology—but he didn’t publish much. George Lindbeck has done us a great favor by editing and publishing Calhoun’s lectures on the history of Christian doctrine. Lindbeck’s introduction provides perspective on Calhoun’s theology. Calhoun’s theological approach could be characterized as “traditional substance, liberal methodology.” His lectures are organized around key periods and key thinkers, not topically.
