Christianity and Liberal Society

Robert Song

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the interpretation of liberalism by Christian theologians and philosophers. It proposes an interpretation of liberalism as a diffuse phenomenon, one which is sufficiently coherent to warrant talk of resemblances of its varieties or families. This method allows critics of liberalism to focus on some of the generating forces of liberalism rather than just on their outworkings and it reveals that diffuseness of liberalism occurs in two dimensions.

Keywords:   liberalism, Christian theologians, Christian philosophers, diffuseness, Christianity
