Christian Thought Revisited: Three Types of Theology

       From the publisher: First published in 1989, Christian Thought Revisited offers an overview of three basic models of theology in Western Christianity. The purpose of this categorization is to help students understand the validity and application of all three models in the study of theology today. Gonzalez has updated the discussion on each model to include contemporary concerns. Type A, historically the most influential of the three types, originated in Carthage and is epitomized in the work of Terullian. Often called 'moral theology,' Type A theology believes that God is the giver of the old and new law. Clement of Alexandria and Origen capture the essence of the 'metaphysical' theology, or Type B, which originated in Alexandria. This theology is philosophical and mystical--discerning hidden patterns in the scriptures, and in the person and revelation of Christ. Type C, the 'pastoral' theology, whose origins are in the lands we today know as Turkey and Syria is manifested in the works of Irenaeus of Lyon. In this model, God leads a people throughout the vicissitudes of history. Though the 'pastoral' theology is a prevalent theme in the Scriptures, it is the least practiced type of theology. While Type A and B favor the social status quo, Gonzalez finds Type C incorporates and is best suited for the challenges of our world today.
