"Theology for Liberal Protestants is a much-needed book by a master teacher. In it Doug Ottati recovers something in danger of being lost -- a systematic account of contemporary life in relation to God as Creator-Judge-Redeemer. He succeeds admirably Engagingly written and accessible to a wide range of readers." William SchweikerCited by: 1.

When any discussion develops concerning Christianity and liberalism, it is crucial that one gives a proper definition of liberalism. The term liberal can mean anything from being free in one’s thinking to being a proponent of the latest fad in the realm of theology or any other ideology.

The term liberal shifts with the sands of time in as much as yesterday’s liberal may be considered. Liberal theology seeks to. reinterpret the symbols of Christianity in a way that creates a progressive religious alternative to atheistic rationalism and to theologies based on external authority.

Specifically, liberal theology is defined by. its openness to the verdicts of modern intellectual inquiry, especially the natural and social sciences.

Liberal theology is a general term for Christian theological thinking that arose in conjunction with modern thought, particularly elements of modern thought that originated in the Age of Enlightenment, such as social equality. It seeks to reconcile Christianity with progressive modern ideas that eschew certain antiquated or hegemonic worldviews.

Liberal theology takes. Liberal postmodernism includes theologians such as Mark Taylor, Thomas Altizer, Robert Scharlemann, Charles Winquist, David Ray Griffen and Don Cupitt.

Liberal theology has always tended to obscure the nature of sin while Neo-orthodoxy has not made clear how redemption actually makes any difference in this life in this world.
