Eccentric existence : a theological anthropology by David H Kelsey( Book )
6 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 226 libraries worldwide
What does it mean to be a human being? Kelsey expertly probes this complicated issue in his exhaustive and ambitious examination of theological anthropology. Divided into three parts, Kelsey's work posits that humanity's relationship to God is a basic claim of Christianity and that God actively relates to human beings in three major ways: God creates them; God is there at the end of all things eschatologically; and God reconciles humans when they are alienated from Him. The result of this seminal theological work is a textured affirmation of humanity's relationship with God and with each other. It represents the culmination of decades of theological thought and is certain to be recognized as a major achievement
Proving doctrine : the uses of Scripture in modern theology by David H Kelsey( Book )
5 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 181 libraries worldwide
How does properly interpreted scripture bear on Christian theology and ethics? That is the question addressed in the Trinity Press edition of this classic text, which includes a new preface by the author. The issue is not so much how to interpret scripture as what to do with it once one has interpreted it. The book therefore explores not what theologians have said about scripture's authority for theology, but the sense in which scripture serves as authority in their actual practice of theology. It offers a set of brief case studies of theologians authorizing or "proving" a theological proposal by scripture, and based on these studies, an analysis of the concept of "authority for theology" implicit in them. Finally, it teases out of the cases implicit assumptions about what the concept of scripture means and why appeal ought to be made to it to "prove theology."
Imagining redemption by David H Kelsey( Book )
2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 180 libraries worldwide
"In this book, theologian David Kelsey offers a discussion of Christian redemption by exploring the story of a series of horrendous events that befell a boy, eight-year-old Sam, and his family in the aftermath of his devastating illness. In the face of such extraordinary suffering, Kelsey asks, "What can it possibly mean to say that in Jesus Christ God redeems such situations and events?"" "In answer, he interweaves this family's story with biblical narrative, theology, and the metaphorical application of secular uses of the words redeem and redemption. He identifies three ways in which to imagine redemption: suggesting how Jesus' ministry may be seen as "making up for" the world's bad performance; how Jesus' passion and crucifixion can reclaim one's personal identity from bondage to distorting powers; and how Jesus' resurrection can be seen as making good on a promise that redeems the family from vicious cycles of interaction that turned their lives into living deaths."--Jacket
