About "Justice the True and Only Mercy"
Specially commissioned essays discuss Forsyth's contribution on themes ranging from the atonement to art, and from tragedy to politics; and consider his work in relation to, for example, Kant, Hegel and Barth. The renewed interest in Forsyth's theology has much to offer today's church.

Trevor A Hart
Trevor A. Hart (Ph.D., University of Aberdeen) is professor of divinity in the University of St. Andrews, Scotland. Professor Hart's research interests lie chiefly in modern theology, and he is the author of a number of books including:The Waiting Father: Thomas Erskine of Linlathen (St Andrew Press, 1993): Justice the True and Only Mercy: Essays on the Life and Theology of Peter Taylor Forsyth (T & T Clark, 1995), Faith Thinking: the Dynamics of Christian Theology (SPCK/IVP 1995), Hope Against Hope: Christian Eschatology in Contemporary Context (with Richard Bauckham, Eerdmans/DLT 1999), Regarding Karl Barth: Toward a Reading of His Theology (Paternoster 1999/IVP 2000), and General Editor of the recently published Dictionary of Historical Theology (Paternoster/Eerdmans 2000).
Since his arrival in St Andrews, Professor Hart's research has focused chiefly on the nature and roles of human imagining. He has lectured widely on this theme within the UK and North America, and is currently working on a book which will explore the claim that imagination may be a primary locus of God's redemptive action in human lives.
