The Culture of Theology Hardcover -

by John Webster; Ivor J. Davidson (Editor); Alden C. McCray (Editor)


From the rear cover

"This volume provides the reader with a wonderful and welcome chance to reflect with John Webster on the task of theology--its methods, sources, contexts, purpose, and character. The lectures presented here are redolent with the freshness, insight, and wisdom that characterize the finest theological inquiry. They leave one inspired and encouraged, yet also gloriously unsettled by the vocation of theology and its demands. Complete with an illuminating introduction by Ivor Davidson, this work comes highly recommended."
--Paul Nimmo, University of Aberdeen

"Why would a theologian as God-centered as John Webster be constantly ruminating on theology's culture, theology's tasks, Christian tradition, university faculties, and so forth? He does so in order to meet his hearers in the midst of their (our) theologically scandalous loss of interest in God and Christ and to call out: God is summoning you, the eschaton (Christ himself) has broken in among you, Scripture is speaking Christ's Word to you in the Spirit! When Christ is recognized for who he is, theology can rediscover itself for what it is: a joyful response to the risen Lord. Let theologians be Christians and thereby really have something to say to one another, to the university, and to the wider world."
--Matthew Levering, Mundelein Seminary

"This book is vintage John Webster--a stringent but also generous summons to let theology be about nothing less than God. It is the best account of what it means to be a theologian existentially since Karl Barth's Evangelical Theology. I hope it will find a wide readership in both the church and the academy."
--Joseph Mangina, Wycliffe College, Toronto School of Theology

"How wonderful to have Webster's Culture of Theology edited and made available to a new generation of readers in this fine book. I count myself fortunate to have had the challenge in these chapters--to strive to think of theology, its methods, aims, and practices, theologically--put to me during my student days and to have been compelled to wrestle continuously with the possibilities and perils of doing theology in the eschatological space created by 'the staggering good news of Jesus Christ.' This book stands as a winsome invitation to others to do the same."
--Philip G. Ziegler, University of Aberdeen
