The Domestication of Transcendence

William Placher

$55.00

Paperback
320 Pages

- Publisher Taking a careful look at the "classical" views (e.g., Aquinas, Calvin, Luther) and later trends beginning in the 17th century, Placher says theology has taken a wrong turn in terms of transcendence, and asks us to reconsider the nature--grace controversy in pre-modern thought.

- Publisher

William Placher looks at "classical" Christian theology (Thomas Aquinas, John Calvin, Martin Luther) and contrasts it with the Christian discourse about God that evolved in the seventeenth century. In particular, he deals with the notion of transcendence that gained prominence in this era and its impact on modern theology and modern thinking today. He persuasively argues that useful lessons can be drawn from premodern thinking about God, especially when viewed within the context of contemporary objections to it. This reexamination, according to Placher, has practical and profound implications for modern theology.
