Scripture, Creed, Theology, by Robert L. Calhoun, edited and with an introduction by George A. Lindbeck

December 28, 2015

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.
