Item description for Christian Contradictions: The Structures of Lutheran and Catholic Thought by Daphne Hampson, Margaret Daphne Hampson & Hampson Daphne...
Catholic thought and Lutheran thought are differently structured, embodying divergent conceptions of self and God. Failing to grasp the Lutheran paradigm, Catholics have wrenched Luther into an inappropriate framework. Roman/Lutheran ecumenism, culminating in the Joint Declaration of 1999, attempts to reconcile incompatible systems, based on different philosophical presuppositions. Drawing on a wealth of material, both Continental and Anglo-Saxon, the author thinks through these structural questions within a historical context. But how - within a religion of revelation - can God be conceptualized as both foundational to the self and yet also on an other with whom the self inter-relates? Kierkegaard is shown in a complex model to hold together strengths which historically have been exemplified by the two traditions. This is an work in systematic theology considers questions quite fundamental to Western religion. It should be of interest to theologians of all backgrounds and also to church historians.
