Rezensionen

Religious Studies Review
"The book's maincontribution thus lies less in its analysis of Lindbeck's andFrei's theology than in its suggestive insights as to what aliberal theology after postliberalism might look like". (TheJournal of SJT, Volume 64/1, 2011) "The Trialof the Witnesses is a truly exciting book thatpoints to new ways of conceiving of and doing theology, both in itsdisruption of the terms of the postliberal debate and in it"modeling of a "thicker" form of textual analysis." (TheJournal of Religion,2009) "DeHart's The Trial of the Witnesses is both the most profoundanalysis to date of the so-called 'Yale School,' and a brilliantattempt to rehabilitate the distinctive theological approach ofHans Frei. But, more than that, it is also a highly suggestive andilluminating constructive proposal in its own right." Faith and Theology " DeHart sees postliberalism as a river whose future is in themany smaller streams of the delta it formed. Others may regard thevery idea of a genuine and contained school of thought at Yale asoverblown or parochial, seeing this school's contributions as partof a much bigger river flowing through 20th-century theology."Choice "Engaging and insightful exploration ... .Vividpresentation of ... both cultural and scholastic contexts. Thisbook is valuable for scholars and graduate students alike."Religious Studies Review"DeHart's The Trial of the Witnesses is both the mostprofound analysis to date of the so-called 'Yale School,' and abrilliant attempt to rehabilitate the distinctive theologicalapproach of Hans Frei.
