Item description for Incarnation and Resurrection: Toward a Contemporary Understanding by Paul D. Molnar...
Overview For too long contemporary theology has downplayed the importance of both the Incarnation and the Resurrection in constructing theological systems. Molnar surveys the place of these key doctrines in the thought of ten influential theologians, including Karl Barth, Karl Rahner, Thomas F. Torrance, John Hick, and Wolfhart Pannenberg. Fair, comprehensive and balanced, his analysis, following Torrance, highlights the intrinsic connection between these two doctrines and details the necessity of resurrection as the beginning, rather than the end, of Christology.
Publishers Description For too long contemporary theology has downplayed the importance of holding together the incarnation and the resurrection when thinking theologically. Paul Molnar here surveys the place of these key doctrines in the thought of several influential theologians: Karl Barth, Karl Rahner, Thomas F. Torrance, John Macquarrie, Gordon Kaufman, Sallie McFague, Roger Haight, John Hick, and Wolfhart Pannenberg. Molnar demonstrates that whenever the starting point for interpreting the resurrection is not Jesus himself, the incarnate Son of the Father, then Christology and Soteriology are undermined because they are not properly rooted in a plausible doctrine of the Trinity. Fair, comprehensive, and balanced, Molnar's analysis, following Torrance and Barth, highlights the details of contemporary theology of the resurrection linked to the incarnation and maintains the necessity of the incarnation in its intrinsic unity with the resurrection as the beginning, rather than the end, of Christology.
