Title: Hinterland Theology A Stimulus to ...

Publisher: Paternoster Press

Binding: Softcover/Paperback

Book Condition: New

Description:

Alan Sell maintains that systematic and constructive theology are best understood as the product of a conversation with the biblical writers, the heritage of Christian thought and the current intellectual enviroment. The conversation will benefit if the voices of the hinterland writers are heard as well as those of the theological and philosophical ?giants.? In this book 10 hinterland theologians associated with English Dissent are introduced, and their writings are discussed. Thomas Ridgley, Abraham Taylor, and Samuel Chandler wrote in the wake of the Toleration Act of 1689; George Payne and Richard Alliott responded to the Enlightenment and the Evangelical Revival; D. W. Simon, T. Vincent Tymms, and Walter F. Adeney took account of modern biblical criticism; and Robert S. Franks and Charles S. Duthie respectively lived through and followed the heyday of liberal theology. The study reveals both adjustments and time lags in theology and shows how hinterland theologians can stimulate the ongoing conversation concerning theological method, philosophical-theological relations, the Trinity, the atonement, and ecumenism.

Synopsis: Alan Sell maintains that systematic and constructive theology are best understood as the product of a conversation with the biblical writers, the heritage of Christian thought and the current intellectual environment. The conversation will benefit if the voices of hinterland writers are heard as well as those of the theological and philosophical 'giants'. In this book, ten hinterland theologians associated with English Dissent are introduced and their writings are discussed. Thomas Ridgley, Abraham Taylor and Samuel Chandler wrote in the wake of the Toleration Act of 1689; George Payne and Richard Alliott responded to the Enlightenment and the Evangelical Revival; D. W. Simon, T. Vincent Tymms and Walter F. Adeney took account of modern biblical criticism, and Robert S. Franks and Charles S. Duthie respectively lived through and followed the heyday of liberal theology. The study reveals both adjustments and time-lags in theology, and shows how hinterland theologians can stimulate the ongoing conversation concerning theological method, philosophico-theological relations, the Trinity, the atonement and ecumenism.

About the Author: Alan P. F. Sell is a philosopher-theologian and ecumenist who has held posts in England, Geneva, Canada, and Wales. He publishes and lectures widely at home and abroad. His most recent book is Four Philosophical Anglicans (2010).
