-Publisher


Continuing the project of 'Word and Church', this new collection gathers studies in three areas.Webster firstly produces studies on the nature of Christian theology and its relation to Scripture and the confessions of the church. He also produces an account of the theological style of the French Dominican theologian Yves Congar.In the second part we find studies on dogmatic topics, one on the theology of the person of Christ, and three on the attributes of God: omnipresence, holiness and love, and veracity.Thirdly and finally Webster studies issues in the doctrine of the church and of Christian practice: an account of the nature of the church in terms of visibility and invisibility; a study of the meaning of Christian hope; and a reflection on gospel freedom.Taken together, the essays are worked examples of 'theological theology', that is, Christian theology which takes its rise in the Christian confession of the gospel which it seeks to hear, celebrate and commend.
