I found Lints' The Fabric of Theology (FOT) through Timothy Keller's references to it in his book Center Church. When Keller relies on and recommends a book, my attention is sparked. Lints was not disappointing.

FOT is written from a conservative evangelical perspective. Lints finds much to affirm in conservative evangelicalism but also offers helpful critiques in at least two areas.

First, while upholding the traditional conservative evangelical approach to the inspiration of the Scriptures (inerrancy, authority, etc.), Lints clearly marks out a more humble path advocating that evangelicals not apply their description of the Bible to their own theology. Simply put, the evangelical's Bible is inspired and inerrant, but her theology is not.

Second, without trashing systematic theology or reducing its importance in any way, Lints offers extensive helpful comparison and differentiation between systematic theology (which looks at the whole Bible in terms of specific topics) and biblical theology (which looks at the whole Bible in terms of God's unfolding redeeming of creation and humanity).

FOT is a weighty evangelical voice on the work of creating theology in our time and place. Lints is worth reading and processing for evangelicals who see theological work as important for every generation.

This book was used in a class by the author and really helped me understand the issues with Evangelical theology (or the lack thereof), the importance of forming theology personally and in community, and how to go about such formation. I feel far more assured of my ability to discern my beliefs and to recognize the barriers/influences to my understanding. I believe I am more equipped to explain my beliefs in a logical fashion to others who may hold a different opinion.

Good discussion of preliminary issues such as the methods and sources of theology.
This is a wonderful, clear-headed approach to taking the deeper things of Scripture seriously. No fluff will be found in this book!

Although I am not a lover of methodology, I've found this to be a good read. Certainly helps to adjust my biases.
