The model of love : a study in philosophical theology by Vincent Brümmer( Book )

16 editions published in 1993 in English and Dutch and held by 435 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Religious believers understand the meaning of their lives and of the world in terms of the way these are related to God. The conceptual models whereby this relationship is described therefore play a key role in the conceptual designs which are produced by systematic theologians to express the faith of the community of believers. Vincent Brummer examines the implications of using the model of love in this context. After discussing the nature and function of conceptual models in science and theology, he focuses on a number of the most significant views of the nature of love: exclusive attention (Ortega y Gasset), ecstatic union (nuptial mysticism), passionate suffering (courtly love), need-love (Plato, Augustine) and gift-love (Nygren). All of these views are shown to interpret love as an attitude rather than as a relationship between persons. In his closing chapters the author develops a relational concept of love and shows how the various attitudes discussed in the previous chapters have a role to play in the relationship. Finally, the differences and similarities between human and divine love are traced and the implications of using the model of love as a key model in theology are examined."--Jacket
Speaking of a personal God : an essay in philosophical theology by Vincent Brümmer( Book )

21 editions published between 1988 and 2000 in English and Dutch and held by 433 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This short work shows how systematic theology is itself a philosophical enterprise. After analysing the nature of philosophical enquiry and its relation to systematic theology, and after explaining how theology requires that we talk about God, Vincent Brümmer illustrates how philosophical analysis can help in dealing with various conceptual problems involved in the fundamental Christian claim that God is a personal being with whom we may live in a personal relationship
