The title of this thesis focuses the evaluation on his theory of doctrinal truth, which includes two aspects: the meaning of true doctrine and nature of justified belief in true doctrine. The conclusion reached is that George Lindbeck's theory of true doctrine and the conditions for justified belief are primarily concerned with intrasystemic consistency, which translate into problems that span his domains of truth and their attending conditions for justified belief-eategorial, intrasystematic, and ontological.
