Trinitarian theology after Barth by Mike Habets( Book )

10 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 135 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

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 75 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

Ecumenical perspectives on the Filioque for the twenty-first century( Book )

4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 68 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
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

Gospel, truth, & interpretation : evangelical identity in Aotearoa New Zealand( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 15 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

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 12 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."--
