Provides original and authoritative surveys of current research in Christian systematic theology Written by an international team of authors who are leading practitioners of the discipline Offers expert guidance as well as creative suggestions about the future direction of the study of Christian doctrine A comprehensive guide that will be invaluable to both researchers and students The Oxford Handbook of Systematic Theology brings together a set of original and authoritative accounts of all the major areas of current research in Christian systematic theology, offering a thorough survey of the state of the discipline and of its prospects for those undertaking research and teaching in the field. The Handbook engages in a comprehensive examination of themes and approaches, guiding the reader through current debates and literatures in the context of the historical development of systematic theological reflection. Organized thematically, it treats in detail the full array of topics in systematic theology, as well as questions of its sources and norms, its relation to other theological and non-theological fields of enquiry, and some major trends in current work. Each chapter provides an analysis of research and debate on its topic, identifying and interpreting options and laying out the basis for the reader to explore the territory, asking: What are the critical issues? How have these issues developed and been expounded? What are current prospects? The focus is on doctrinal (rather than historical) questions, and on major (rather than ephemeral) debates. The aim is to stimulate readers to reach theological judgements on the basis of consideration of the range of opinion. Drawn from Europe, the UK, and North America, the authors are all leading practitioners of the discipline. Readers will find expert guidance as well as creative suggestions about the future direction of the study of Christian doctrine

Holy Scripture : a dogmatic sketch by John Webster( Book )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

John Webster argues that, whereas any understanding of scripture must be subject to appropriate textual and historical interrogation, it is also necessary to acknowledge the special character of scriptural writing. His book strongly reaffirms that the triune God is at the core of a scripture-based Christianity. Written by a theologian who understands the currents of modern secular thought, the volume develops a constructive position on biblical authority

Barth by John Webster( Book )

2 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Karl Barth (1886-1968) has been called the most important Protestant theologian since Schleiermacher. A lifetime of work produced a huge and complex body of writings that emerged both from his theological teaching and from his engagement in church life. The publication of some of this work posthumously has invited fresh and attentive interpretations of his thought." "This book draws together these readings to provide a clear and authoritative introduction to the main themes in Barth's theology. In an accessible way it shows the continuity and coherence of Barth's work and stresses the importance of his biblical and ethical writings alongside his systematic theology. In conclusion it focuses on Barth's response to modernity, postmodernity and the tasks of theology, presenting him as an outstanding resource for constructive theology in our age."--Jacket
