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.

Douglas F. Ottati is an elder in the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) and the Craig Family Distinguished Professor in Reformed Theology and Justice Ministry at Davidson College in Davidson, North Carolina. He is the author of Meaning and Method in H. Richard Niebuhr's Theology, Jesus Christ and Christian Vision, Reforming Protestantism: Christian Commitment in Today's World, and Hopeful Realism: Reclaiming the Poetry of Theology.He is also a general editor of the Library of Theological Ethics series.
