Item description for Christology from Within and Ahead: Hermeneutics, Contingency, and the Quest for Transcontextual Criteria in Christology (Biblical Interpretation Series) by Mark Chan...
Troeltsch's struggle with historicism sets the stage for a proposal that Christology be done "from within" and "from ahead," Gadamer's philosophical hermeneutics and Schleiermacher's experiential theology inform a Christology "from within" that is rooted in tradition and experience, while Pannenberg's notion of proleptic eschatological fulfilment serves as resource for a Christology "from ahead," This volume develops a hermeneutical Christology that takes into account the historical contingency of knowledge, and seeks a Christology beyond the objectivism of timeless truth and the relativism of absolutised contextuality. The book is concluded with an examination of the convergence of critical traditionality, experiential appropriation and eschatological prolepsis in the Christology of the apostle Paul. The author explores how Christology might respond to the scandal of universality in postmodernity without defaulting on its claim to transcontextual referentiality.
