Mainline Protestantism in a Post-Protestant Time: A Response to David Hollinger

This summer I was asked to deliver two lectures on Mainline Protestantism for the annual Craigville Colloquy on Cape Cod.  One of those lectures focused on the work of Berkeley intellectual historian David Hollinger on what he calls “ecumenical” Protestantism.  I find his analysis helpful for those wrestling with the theological and institutional issues facing the so-called “mainline” and “progressive” Christian churches and their interfaith partners. Here’s the lecture:  craigville colloquy 2012 lecture 2 PDF
