Helm on Franke

Posted by

Paul Helm reviews John Franke's The Character of Theology.

I will argue that Franke has seriously miscalculated what is involved in relating Christian faith to its cultural context, for he has overestimated the ease with which a non-foundational Christian theology may be developed. By a happy irony, he has not succeeded in his project and (I shall imply) must fail to do so. What he offers remains a foundational theology. Nevertheless, it is a seriously deficient form of foundational theology. It is theologically unstable because it concedes too much to the culture and downplays the importance of truth. Theology is no easy task.
