Trinitarian theology after Barth( Book )

10 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 138 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Like the Dogmatics in which it is arguably the driving force, Barth{u2019}s doctrine of the Trinity is a magisterial but incomplete achievement. Why magisterial? Partly because of its sheer scale and artistry. Partly because Barth understood very clearly at a critical point in the history of Protestant theology that it is from Trinitarian teaching that Christian dogmatics derives not only the entirety of what it has to say about God, but also what it has to say about the relation of God and creatures; others before him in the modern Protestant tradition had let the doctrine of the Trinity loose in this way (Dorner{u2019}s seriously neglected System of Christian Doctrine is a case in point), but Barth did so with consummate skill and sense of occasion. Partly, again, because of the descriptive depth of what Barth has to say. Throughout the Dogmatics Barth exercised a capacity for astonished portrayal of the substance of Trinitarian teaching {u2013} not only in the doctrine of reconciliation, considered by many to be his most satisfying account of God{u2019}s triune being, but also in the early treatment in I/1 which, despite its stiffness at certain points, contains some of the finest passages of dogmatic writing Barth ever produced. .. Barth{u2019}s Trinitarian theology continues to be a commanding presence. The essays which follow, with, after and beyond Barth, testify both to the fact that interpretation of one of Barth{u2019}s doctrinal convictions is an open matter, and to the seemingly inexhaustible resourcefulness of what he has to say." -- Forward by John B. Webster

Perichoresis and personhood : God, Christ, and salvation in John of Damascus by Charles C Twombly( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 90 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Perichoresis (mutual indwelling) is a concept used extensively in the so-called Trinitarian revival; and yet no book-length study in English exists probing how the term actually developed in the "classical period" of Christian doctrine and how it was carefully deployed in relation to Christian dogma. Consequently, perichoresis is often used in imprecise and even careless ways. This path-breaking study aims at placing our understanding of the term on firmer footing, clarifying its actual usage in relation to doctrines of God, Christ, and salvation in the thought of John of Damascus, the eighth-century theologian, monk, and hymn writer who gave it its historically influential application. Since John summed up a whole theological tradition, this work provides not only an introduction to his theological vision but also to the key themes of Greek patristic thought generally and thereby lays an essential foundation for those who would dig deeper into the present-day usefulness of perichoresis
Theology in transposition : a constructive appraisal of T.F. Torrance by Myk Habets( Book )

3 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"T. F. Torrance was one of the most significant English-language theologians of the twentieth-century known extensively for his curatorship of the English translation of Barth's Church Dogmatics but also for his own prodigious theological scholarship. The complexity and astonishing breadth of Torrances output, however, have made assessment and appropriation markedly difficult. This volume seeks to rectify that lack of assessment through careful exposition of the vital centers and interconnections within Torrances theology alongside constructive appraisal and critique of his contributions to contemporary theology"--Publisher description

Evangelical Calvinism : essays resourcing the continuing reformation of the church( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 74 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this exciting volume, new and emerging voices join senior Reformed scholars in presenting a coherent and impassioned articulation of Calvinism for today's world. Evangelical Calvinism represents a mood within current Reformed theology. The various contributors are in different ways articulating that mood, of which their very diversity is a significant element. In attempting to outline features of an Evangelical Calvinism, a number of the contributors compare and contrast this approach with that of Federal Calvinism currently dominant in North American Reformed theology, challenging the assumption that Federal Calvinism is the only possible expression of orthodox Reformed theology. This book does not, however, represent the arrival of a "new Calvinism" or even a "neo-Calvinism," if by those terms are meant a novel reading of the Reformed faith. An Evangelical Calvinism highlights a Calvinistic tradition that has developed particularly within Scotland, but is not unique to the Scots. The editors have picked up the baton passed on by John Calvin, Karl Barth, Thomas Torrance, and others, in order to offer the family of Reformed theologies a reinvigorated theological and spiritual ethos. This volume promises to set the agenda for Reformed-Calvinist discussion for some time to come.--from publisher
Ecumenical perspectives on the Filioque for the twenty-first century( Book )

5 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume presents a range of theological standpoints regarding the filioque. With some contributors arguing for its retention and others for its removal, still others contest that its presence or otherwise in the Creed is not what is of central concern, but rather that how it should be understood is of ultimate importance. What contributors share is a commitment to interrogating and developing the central theological issues at stake in a consideration of the filioque, thus advancing ecumenical theology and inter-communal dialogue without diluting the discussion
Third Article Theology : a pneumatological dogmatics by Myk Habets( Book )

4 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 69 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Third Article Theology (TAT) is the name given to a new movement in constructive theology utilizing a distinctly pneumatological approach to dogmatics. Trinitarian in its foundation, pneumatological in its impetus, and comprehensive in its scope, TAT specifies both a method and a theology. Thinking through the theological loci of the tradition in relation to the Holy Spirit opens up new vistas and a deeper vision of the task of theology, revealing ways of thinking hitherto eclipsed by the tradition. Drawing upon the trinitarianism of the Great Tradition, theologians from across the theological spectrumbring their voices to bear upon central and defining theological issues of today in order to present a new form of systematic theology--a pneumatological dogmatics--capable of representing the faith in a contemporary mode. For students, scholars, and clergy, the volume unfolds the classic articles of systematic theology in this new register. Each doctrinal article is written by a leading theologian in the field, with essays from Amos Yong, Eugene Rogers, Veli-Matti Karkkainen, Joel Green, Marc Cortez, Frank Macchia, Myk Habets, and others
The Spirit of truth : reading Scripture and constructing theology with the Holy Spirit( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The voice of God in the text of Scripture : explorations in constructive dogmatics( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 49 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Scholars from biblical studies and theology have recently been engaged in various ways in the project of theological interpretation of Scripture. This literature has raised issues about the theological content of the biblical material, authorial intention, the reception and formation of the Bible as Christian Scripture, the importance of the canonical form of the text, and the relationship between Scripture and the Rule of Faith. With this recent interdisciplinary debate in mind, the fourth annual Los Angeles Theology Conference focuses on the theological and doctrinal dimensions to the biblical texts drawing on scholars of biblical studies and theology in order to do so. The question that frames it is, "How does the voice of God come to us in the text of Scripture?"
The trinitarian faith : the evangelical theology of the ancient Catholic Church by Thomas F Torrance( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Cutting across the divide between East and West and between Catholic and Evangelical, Thomas F. Torrance illuminates our understanding of the doctrine of the Holy Trinity. Torrance combines here the Gospel and a theology shaped by Karl Barth and the Church Fathers, and offers his readers a unique synthesis of the Nicene Creed. This volume remains a tremendously helpful resource on the doctrine of the Trinity and the Nicene Creed. The new introduction for this Cornerstones edition is written by Myk Habets, the leading Thomas F. Torrance scholar today."--
Gospel, truth, & interpretation : evangelical identity in Aotearoa New Zealand( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The story of evangelicalism in New Zealand is almost as old as the history of European contact. The essays in this volume exhibit much of the breadth and depth of this evangelical witness, divided as it is into two sections: historical and theological. As David Bebbington says of the historical essays in this volume, what is most striking about the members of the evangelical bodies depicted in this volume is their variety. These people were not uniformly anything, let alone joyless or humourless. The evangelicals of New Zealand were by no means monochrome, and least of all black. Derek Tidball says of the theological essays in this volume, that they exhibit four hallmarks: they are evangelical, contextual, creative, and courageous, before concluding: These papers show skilled evangelical theological acrobats in action, not for the entertainment of us all but for the instruction of us all."--Publisher's description

Kiwimade narrative sermons : the drama is the doctrine( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection of over forty narrative sermons illustrate the science and art of taking a text of Scripture, almost any text, and crafting it into a narrative that effectively and affectively communicates the content of Holy Scripture in ways that impact the congregation. Spanning the canon of Holy Scripture the present volume represents a snapshot of current preaching by Baptist women and men from Aotearoa New Zealand in an attempt to teach by illustration what narrative sermons may look like, and to model the potential they have to communicate God's Word written. Originally preached to a diverse range of congregations, each sermon has been re-written for publication and illustrates biblical fidelity, imaginative creativity, and contextual sensitivity. Kiwimade Narrative Sermons is a key resource text for classes on homiletics, a refresher course for seasoned ministers of the Word, and a devotional aid in its own right
Doing integrative theology : word, world and work in conversation( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The doing of theology comes in many different guises and styles. This volume is concerned with Integrative Theology, a discipline which serves participation in the mission of God. It is a practice of discernment by which we aim to be attentive to God in God's world, God's word, and God's work, so as to grow in our understanding of what God wants for and is doing in the world. We seek this knowledge so that we may align ourselves with God's desire in relation to specific realities and issues and serve what we discern to be God's purpose with wisdom and courage. When we do that, we are participating in the mission of God. By means of an explanation of Integrative Theology, its aims, goals, and methods, and then through a series of essays illustrating the results of such a theology, this volume serves as a textbook for doing Integrative Theology. Students and faculty alike will find in this volume a valuable resource for doing theology in the early twenty-first century
