Rowan Williams remembers George Lindbeck's influence on theology.
Lindbeck saw early and clearly that the only way to sustain the Catholic character of the Church depended on the Church looking more Anabaptist than universalist.
George A. Lindbeck’s death on January 8 brings to a close an era of extraordinarily fruitful theological work that he engaged with colleagues around the Church.
Whatever else postliberalism is, it was meant to be an apologetic help to be a credal or mere Christian in our age. That is what George Lindbeck was and what he wanted to promote.
