with Peter Ochs
Examine a collection of contemporary Christian theologians (Lindbeck, Hauerwas and 5 more) who renew and refine Reformation doctrines in surprising ways. Why does each theologian seek to renew and refine Reformation doctrines, affirming a robust theology of Scripture, of Jesus Christ, and of ecclesial community while at the same time affirming renewed engagement and dialogue with both biblical and rabbinic Judaism?
Peter W. Ochs is the Edgar M. Bronfman Professor of Modern Judaic Studies at the University of Virginia, where he has served since 1997. He is an influential thinker whose interests include Jewish philosophy and theology, modern and postmodern philosophical theology,pragmatism, and semiotics. Ochs coined the term “scriptural reasoning” and is the co-founder (with Anglican theologian David F. Ford) of the Society for Scriptural Reasoning, which promotes interfaith dialog among Christians, Jews, and Muslims through scriptural study groups. He is also a co-founder of the Children of Abraham Institute, which promotes interfaith study and dialog among members of the Abrahamic religions.
