Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this witty, accessible, and concise book, theologian Doug Ottati argues that liberal Presbyterians and other liberal Protestants still have much to contribute to the contemporary world. Offering an alternative to evangelical and conservative thought that he believes now pervades the larger culture, Ottati presents what he sees as the foundations of liberal, theological thought. Writing out of the Reformed tradition and a theology of grace, he addresses current issues such as evangelism, the ordination of homosexuals, and the war on terrorism. Most important, this book is a call to liberal Presbyterians and other liberal Protestants to restate, rethink, and revise traditional theologies and beliefs in the face of contemporary knowledge and realities. This book is ideal for individual or group study.

Synopsis:

Self-identified liberal theologian Doug Ottati has decided that it is time to address the Presbyterian Church and spell out the foundations of liberal theological thought. In a personal and witty style, Ottati takes on current issues such as evangelism, the ordination of homosexuals, and the war on terrorism and examines these issues in light of a basic reformed belief: a theology of grace.
