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
