The goal of this anthology is to collect key samples of Lindbeck's enterprise, especially for readers who may know none or only a few of his books and articles. The samples may, for some, speak for themselves. For others, the editor has provided a brief preface to each selection to help readers unfamiliar with Lindbeck understand what is at stake. Buckley's aim is to suggest how Lindbeck's Christian theology of "the Church in a postliberal age" can be read as a "radical tradition". By characterizing Lindbeck's Christian theology as at once evangelical, catholic and postliberal, we are able to understand what describing this theology as a radical tradition might mean as well as locate some of his critics. This volume provides a useful introduction to all those interested in Lindbeck's thought as well as to the significant debates surrounding postliberalism.
