God The Worlds Future Rev Ed / Edition 2by Ted Peters
Pub. Date: 09/01/2000
Publisher: Augsburg Fortress, Publishers
Since its original publication, God-The World's Future, has been widely and successfully as a comprehensive textbook in systematic theology explicitly crafted in light of the postmodern context. It explains the whole body of Christian historical doctrine from within a "proleptic" framework, "whereby the gospel is understood as announcing the pre-actualization of the future consummation of all things in Jesus Christ." This concept is skillfully deployed not only to organize the various theological areas or loci but also to rethink doctrines in light of key postmodern challenges from ecumenism, critical historical thinking, contemporary science, and gender relations.
In this edition, Peters has updated each chapter, made substantive changes in the book's treatment of God and Christ's "offices," and elaborated his theology in light of developments in feminist and deconstructive theologies.
