RT Book, Whole DB /z-wcorg/ DS http://worldcat.org ID 49917106 LA English T1 Covenant and eschatology : the divine drama A1 Horton, Michael Scott., PB Westminster John Knox Press PP Louisville, Ky. YR 2002 SN 0664225012 9780664225018 AB In this innovative work in theological method and hermeneutics, Michael S. Horton uses the motif of the covenant as a way of binding together God's "word" and God's "act." Seeking an integration of theological method with the content of Christian theology, Horton emphasizes God's covenant as God's way of working for redemption in the world. Horton maintains a substantial dialogue with important philosophical figures and Christian theologians, ultimately providing scholars and serious students a significant model for approaching and understanding Christian theology. Operating from the conviction that the content of theology should shape and determine the method for doing theology, Michael S. Horton proposes a redemptive-historical method, an analogical mode, a dramatic model, and the covenant context for reintegrating the discipline of theology. Drawing on the metaphor of performance, Horton brings together theory and praxis. He dialogues constructively with Protestant scholasticism as well as with contemporary speech-act theory, hermeneutics, and postmodern thought, ultimately providing scholars and students with a significant proposal for integrating biblical and systematic theology.
