Trinitarian theology after Barth by Myk Habets( )

16 editions published between 1901 and 2012 in English and held by 747 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Like the Dogmatics in which it is arguably the driving force, Barth'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'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 - not only in the doctrine of reconciliation, considered by many to be his most satisfying account of God'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'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's doctrinal convictions is an open matter, and to the seemingly inexhaustible resourcefulness of what he has to say."--Forward by John B. Webster
Third Article Theology : a pneumatological dogmatics by Myk Habets( )

6 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 450 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Third Article Theology (TAT) is a 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 in relation to the Holy Spirit and drawing upon the trinitarianism of the Great Tradition, leading theologians from across the theological spectrum take up central and defining theological issues of today in order to present a new form of systematic theology-- a pneumatological dogmatics for students, scholars, and clergy. - back of book
Theology in transposition : a constructive appraisal of T.F. Torrance by Myk Habets( )

6 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 431 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 : Volume 2: Dogmatics and Devotion by Myk Habets( )

2 editions published between 1901 and 2017 in English and held by 185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Continuing the discussion initiated in volume one, volume two of Evangelical Calvinism further articulates the central motifs of this mood within Reformed theology by examining themes having to do with dogmatics and devotion. After further clarifying the methodological and dogmatic aspects common to an Evangelical Calvinism, the heart of the present volume is an explication of the vicarious ministry of Christ as it is worked out in its diverse theological dimensions. The volume offers constructive accounts of various aspects of liturgy, sacraments, and doxology, showing the vitality and lived
Ecumenical perspectives on the Filioque for the twenty-first century( )

8 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 184 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
Perichoresis and personhood : God, Christ, and salvation in John of Damascus by Charles C Twombly( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 146 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
The anointed Son : a Trinitarian Spirit Christology by Myk Habets( Book )

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

4 editions published between 1901 and 2012 in English and held by 115 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
The Spirit of truth : reading Scripture and constructing theology with the Holy Spirit by Myk Habets( Book )

4 editions published between 1901 and 2010 in English and held by 86 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Among the theological loci pneumatology is one of the most stimulating, exciting, and difficult topics to study; it is also one of the most rewarding. The identity and mission of the Holy Spirit is pervasive throughout Scripture and the Great Tradition, and within contemporary Christianity it is one of the most popular topics currently being explored. Here ten scholars present twelve essays spanning biblical, hermeneutical, theological, and practical disciplines. The result is not an evangelical pneumatology in systematic fashion, nor is it a comprehensive theology of the Holy Spirit. Rather, this volume presents explorations in pneumatology from a variety of evangelical scholars working in varying contexts (mostly the South Pacific basin) but each wrestling equally with what the Spirit of Truth is saying to the churches today. This is a work of outstanding scholarship with essays by Canadian theologian Gary Badcock and a cast of established and emerging Kiwi-or New Zealand-theologians, which gives the work a unique contextual flavor alongside its ecumenical and evangelical commitment."--Back cover

The progressive mystery : tracing the elusive Spirit in Scripture & tradition by Myk Habets( )

3 editions published between 1901 and 2019 in English and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Myk Habets carefully explores the progressively revealed identity and mission of the Holy Spirit as revealed throughout Holy Scripture and then interpreted by the Church. As a work of biblical theology, the focus of Parts 1 & 2 is on how the identity of the Spirit has been revealed, understood, and interpreted throughout the sweep of Holy Scripture. As a contribution to historical theology, the focus on Parts 3 & 4 is on the ways in which the orthodox understanding of the mission of the Holy Spirit has developed. This study offers graduate students the ideal entrée into the study of pneumatology as it opens the windows on Scripture and Tradition in ways which allow others to see what is going on. Taking its place among other introductions to pneumatology, this study is a readable and reliable guide to what is often considered the elusive Holy Spirit of God

The trinitarian faith : the evangelical theology of the ancient Catholic Church by Thomas F Torrance( Book )

2 editions published between 2016 and 2019 in English and held by 39 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."--Bloomsbury Publishing
The art of forgiveness( Book )

4 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Forgiveness is at the heart of the Christian Gospel. It goes hand in hand with love, mercy, and grace, the fundamental theological virtues. However, forgiveness is easier to define than it is to embody. This unique collection of essays brings together theologians, ethicists, and ministry practitioners into a constructive dialog which explores the complex and crucial concept of forgiveness: what it is, where it is to be found, and how it might be practiced. These essays reflect the perspectives of those from various traditions who nonetheless take the Christian Scriptures seriously, believe that forgiveness is central to living out the Gospel, and are creative in the ways in which forgiveness can be practiced. Forgiveness is an art and not simply a science; as such it requires trust, skill, and hope alongside love, mercy, and grace if it is to be embodied. This volume offers a unique window into the art of forgiveness and the faithful and innovative ways in which it is to be understood, embodied, and cultivated
