New Birth of Freedom: A Theology of Bondage and Liberation

Synopsis

An exciting theological contribution, New Birth of Freedom is an exercise in systematic theology with freedom as its central theme, universal in scope and application yet distinctively American in origin and point of view. Using the American experiences of freedom and oppression as starting points, the author seeks to develop an interpretation of the symbols of Christian faith as a whole. Professor Hodgson demonstrates his thesis in terms of the story of Christian faith ? human bondage and liberation ? which is also the story of God's worldly suffering and redemptive power. The author integrates data from the American experience, the literature of the liberation movements, and the analysis of existential and social phenomenology into a constructive theological statement. The book provides theological resources for interpreting the central dilemma of the American experience-the contradiction between the ideals of freedom and equality espoused by the Declaration of Independence and the realities of racial, class, sexual, as well as economic, political, and technological domination.
