Item description for Self and Salvation: Being Transformed (Cambridge Studies in Christian Doctrine) by David F. Ford, Ford David F. & Daniel W. Hardy...
Overview This is an important and original study of the ideas of self and Christian salvation. Using the pivotal image of the face, David F. Ford engages with three modern thinkers in order to rethink and reimagine the self. He goes on to examine the dimensions of salvation through the lenses of scripture, worship practices, Christ and the lives of contemporary saints. The result is a theology of self and salvation immersed in Christian faith, thought and practice, while also being deeply involved with modern life in a pluralist world.
Publishers Description This text contributes to the debate about the Christian doctrine of salvation. Using the pivotal image of the face, the author offers a constructive and contemporary account of the self being transformed. He engages with three modern thinkers (Levinas, Jongel and Ricoeur) in order to rethink and reimagine the meaning of self. Developing the concept of a worshipping self, he explores the dimensions of salvation through the lenses of scripture, worship practices, the life, death and resurrection of Christ, and the lives of contemporary saints. He uses different genres and traditions to show how the self flourishes through engagement with God, other people, and the responsibilities and joys of ordinary living. The result is a habitable theology of salvation immersed in Christian faith, thought and practice while also being deeply involved with modern life in a pluralist world.
