Overview

How does postliberalism relate to Roman Catholic theology? More specifically, how reliant is postliberalism on what happened at Vatican II? This work examines the Roman Catholic roots of postliberal theology, centering on conversations with three of the most important North American theologians in the last half of the twentieth century:

George Lindbeck (PhD, Yale University), formerly Pitkin Professor Emeritus of Historical Theology at Yale University

David Burrell, CSC (PhD, Yale University), Theodore M. Hesburgh, CSC Professor in Philosophy and Theology at the University of Notre Dame and professor of ethics and development at Uganda Martyrs University

Stanley Hauerwas (PhD, Yale University), Gilbert T. Rowe Professor of Theological Ethics at Duke University

Postliberal Theology and the Church Catholic not only offers insight into the contingent histories of three seminal theologians but also places postliberal theology within the broader stream of the great tradition of the church.

"A powerful and much-needed defense of Christian 'postliberalism' as central to the unity of the church catholic. . . . Wright shows how the words of Lindbeck, Hauerwas, and Burrell serve as best witness for the defense, and his own words brilliantly join theirs to the ressourcement of Congar and de Lubac. . . . Wright's book marks a new day (and new names) for 'postliberal' theology, now Protestant and Catholic, and more urgent than ever. The book is amazing."
Peter Ochs, Edgar Bronfman Professor of Modern Judaic Studies, University of Virginia
