Holiness

John B Webster

$65.00

Hardback
John Webster presents a trinitarian theology of holiness. According to this account, God's holiness is known not in his simple transcendence but in his gracious and free relationship to his creatures. That holiness finds an echo in the holiness of the Christian community.

- Publisher 'A Christian theology of holiness is an exercise of holy reason; it has its context and its content in the revelatory presence of the Holy Trinity which is set forth in Holy Scripture; it is a venture undertaken in prayerful dependence upon the Holy Spirit; it is an exercise in the fellowship of the saints, serving the confession of the holy people of God; it is a work in which holiness is perfected in the fear of God; and its end is the sanctifying of God's holy name.'^So begins John Webster's masterful account of holiness. Webster is already well-known as one of Britain's finest systematic theologians and teachers of dogmatics, and his many admirers will be delighted by this uncompromising and thoroughgoing trinitarian theology of holiness, which is accessible to a wide range of audiences, including ordinands, students of theology, and interested laypeople. According to this account, God's holiness is known not in his simple transcendence but in his gracious and free relationship to his creatures. That holiness finds an echo in the holiness of the Christian community, especially in worship and witness, and in the life of the individual disciple. Integrating biblical, dogmatic and practical theology, the book -- which is based on the prestigious Day-Higginbotham lectures delivered in the University of Toronto in 2002 -- offers a succinct account of a central and neglected theme in Christian teaching and practice.
