Item description for The Suffering of God According to Martin Luther's 'Theologia Crucis' by Dennis Ngien & Jurgen Moltmann...

Overview
Does God suffer within himself? Does God suffer only in the humanity of Jesus Christ? Or does only the God-man Jesus Christ suffer? This book seeks to demonstrate that the suffering of God has an "ontological status" in Luther's Theologia Crucis.

The discussion concentrates on three constituents of Luther's theology---Christology, soteriology, and Trinity---to see how each of them establishes the assertion that God suffers. It also places Luther within the modern discussions of Essential Apathy: Luther accepts the Old Church's Theopaschitism, but rejects Patripassianism, a heresy of the Old Church.

This study breaks new ground by taking Luther a step further, arguing that only a Trinitarian theology of the cross is genuine Christian theology, and that the suffering of Christ touches the immanent Trinity as well as the economic Trinity. Ngien engages in useful discussions with other scholars including Paul Althaus, Walter von Loewenich, Ian Siggins, Marc Lienhard, Eberhard J|ngel, J|rgen Moltmann, and Alister McGrath.

It also places Luther within the modern discussions of Essential Apathy: Luther accepts the Old Church's Theopaschitism, but rejects Patripassianism, a heresy of the Old Church.

"Dr. Ngien has done a good job of sorting out Luther's numerous statements about the suffering of God and finding consistency in them. He engages in a useful discussion with other Lutheran commentators. He presents a concise and competent survey of the early church's discussion of the suffering of God and also attends to Luther's reception of and reaction to late medieval thought." - David E. Demson, University of Toronto Dennis Ngien (PhD) is Research Professor of Theology at Tyndale University College and Seminary, Toronto. He is founder of the Centre for Mentorship and Theological Reflection, and author of Apologetic for Filioque in Medieval Theology (Paternoster Press, 2005) as well as numerous journal articles.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Suffering of God According to Martin Luther's 'Theologia Crucis'?

An excellent work on Luther's view of God  May 21, 2008
Prof. Ngien interacts with a very wide range of Luther's writings and later Lutheran theologians to uncover Luther's view of the suffering of God in Christ. Forward by Moltmann, chapters include: "Divine Suffering in Early Church History," "Luther's theologia crucis(theology of the cross): Historical Background and Constitutive Primciples," "Christology and Divine Suffering," "Soteriology (salvation) and Divine Suffering," and "Trinity and Divine Suffering," as well as the introduction and conclusion. Clearly written, this work brings together modern research and Luther theology on the subject of how the two natures of Christ (God and Man) interact within the one person, Jesus Christ.
