about this item

"This second of two volumes assembling a selection of the author's essays and papers features material on Christian dogmatics and morals. John Webster, in this the companion volume to The Domain of the Word, collates related studies on topics in dogmaticand moral theology. The volume begins with an introduction to the dominant themes of the book and its distinctive approach to them. This is followed by part one, which consists of three studies of the theology of God in himself: one on the neglected topic of divine aseity, and two on the theology of the eternal Son. The second part of the book treats the outer work of God in providence (chapter 5) and redemption (chapters 6 and 7). The third part features studies in the theology of created being, concentrating especially upon the moral nature of creatures, and concluding with a substantial treatment of the theology of the Christian society. The essays present a coherent understanding of the content, structure and proportions of Christian dogmatics, in which Christian teaching is understood as an extension of the Christian doctrine of God, and engage in critical conversation with classical and contemporary theological texts"--
