If one accepts the basic premise of the sociology of knowledge – that our truths are values, culturally produced, and culturally relative – then theology becomes problematic. Theology wishes to retain disciplinary autonomy. but the sociology of knowledge does not respect the boundaries that we erect between different kinds of knowledge. It is this particular challenge that is addressed in this most original book. Dan Frank argues that what is needed is a step-by-step re-evaluation of the traditional theological affirmations in terms of these new cognitive criteria, and theorizes that a new theology could be constructed by critical reflection of the successes and failures of modernity.
