It is an attitude towards one's own religion (as opposed to criticism of religion from a secular position, and as opposed to criticism of a religion other than one's own) which contrasts with a traditionalist or orthodox approach, and it is directly opposed by trends of religious fundamentalism

Fundamentalism has a very specific meaning in the history of American . Christian Fundamentalism in America. Summary and Keywords. Theological liberalism was incarnational; that is, it found God in human interactions and human institutions.

Fundamentalism has a very specific meaning in the history of American Christianity, as the name taken by a coalition of mostly white, mostly northern Protestants who, in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, united in opposition to theological liberalism. In 19th-century terms-in an era before the world wars and genocides of the 20th century-this meant it was a religion of progress and ethical optimism.

Fundamentalism usually has a religious connotation that indicates unwavering attachment to a set of irreducible beliefs.

In this new book on American religious liberalism, Leigh Schmidt, Sally Promey, and their coauthors have set themselves a daunting task. Historian William R. Hutchison explained at the beginning ofThe Modernist Impulse in American Protestantism(1976), still a scholarly benchmark in the field of American religious history, that he had not attempted to trace the entire history of Protestant liberalism but rather the development and demise of a cluster of liberal ideas. The crux, for Hutchison, was the conscientious adaptation of.

Religious liberalism is a form of approach to religion which is critical . The moderate wing of Modern Orthodox Judaism, especially Open Orthodoxy, espouses a similar approach.

Religious liberalism is a form of approach to religion which is critical, rationalistic or humanistic. It is an attitude towards one's own religion (as opposed to criticism of religion from a secular position, or as opposed to criticism of a religion other than one's own) which contrasts with a traditionalist or orthodox approach, and. Religious liberalism is ultimately based in the attempt to reconcile pre-modern religious tradition with modernity. This project is, of course, contentious.

Unlike many topics of American religious history, students of religious liberalism have not waged pitched battles of interpretation. They have, however, presented markedly different perspectives on what the animal "really was" according to their interests

Unlike many topics of American religious history, students of religious liberalism have not waged pitched battles of interpretation. They have, however, presented markedly different perspectives on what the animal "really was" according to their interests. The most influential study of religious liberalism as an intellectual movement remains William R. Hutchison, The Modernist Impulse in American Protestantism (1976). However, fundamentalism has come to apply to a tendency among certain groups-mainly, though not exclusively, in religion-that is characterized by a strictly literal (empirical) interpretation of scriptures. By this definition many Atheists are fundamentalists too.

Religious liberalism in America has often been equated with an ecumenical Protestant establishment. By contrast, American Religious Liberalism draws attention to the broad diversity of liberal cultures that shapes America's religious movements. The essays gathered here push beyond familiar tropes and boundaries to interrogate religious liberalism's dense cultural leanings by looking at spirituality in the arts, the politics and piety of religious cosmopolitanism, and the interaction between liberal religion and liberal secularism.

Modern liberalism is not completely collectivist; nor is it completely . The founders clearly did not intend to remove religion from the public square. In American politics these days, it is increasingly common for those on the left to call themselves progressives rather than liberals

Modern liberalism is not completely collectivist; nor is it completely individualistic. It has elements of both doctrines. They did intend for the American system of government, at least at the federal level, to be pluralistic and tolerant with respect to religion. In American politics these days, it is increasingly common for those on the left to call themselves progressives rather than liberals. The term is apt in the sense that much of modern liberalism has its roots in the Progressive Era, which flourished in the first several decades of the 20th century.

I may actually agree with Horsch that religious liberalism is an issue if it fundamentally weakens a strong connection to core tenets of Christianity. It can result in wishy-washy adherents prone to unorthodox ideas if there isn't a grounding in essentials of faith.

However, I cannot recommend this book. It confuses religious liberalism with ANY kind of progressive ideas, new customs or changing beliefs, and, most frighteningly, the very nature of science is attacked as if it a false faith. Changing cultural norms, which have changed constantly since the founding of Christianity, are confused with with weakness or strength of faith. Therefore it is a scandal if men and women associate in a closer or different manner than they used to; a scandal if a person of faith embraces the scientific method --these are signs of LIBERALISM, which is not to be tolerated in any form.

I find a common thread throughout earlier Mennonite writers trying to prove a point: they openly distrust science as a rival of faith, mistakenly ascribe atheism and human-worship to the study of naturalism and evolutionary activity, deny abundant evidence in favor of cherry-picked nuggets which help their argument, and use any number of fallacies to make irrational leaps of logic.

This book is actually pretty good. It is a little dry, and is primarily composed of quotes from various modern scholars.
However, this book is really good if you are interested in this subject. It documents the apostasy and doctrinal "murkiness" that has come about in Christianity today.
