Item description for God the Worlds Future Rev Ed by Ted Peters...

Overview
Since its original publication, God : The World's Future has been widely and successfully used as a comprehensive textbook in systematic theology explicitly crafted in light of the postmodern context. Peters unfolds the whole body of Christian historical doctrine from within a "proleptic" framework, "whereby the gospel is understood as announcing the pre-actualization of the future consummation of all things in Jesus Christ." This concept is skillfully deployed to organize the various theological areas or loci and to rethink doctrines in light of key postmodern challenges from ecumenism, critical historical thinking, contemporary science, and gender relations. In this new edition, Peters has updated each chapter, made substantive changes in the book's treatment of God and Christ's "offices," and elaborated his theology in light of developments in feminist and deconstructive theologies.

Reviews - What do customers think about God the Worlds Future Rev Ed?

A Theological Eye-Opener for the Post-Modernist Mind  Apr 11, 2008
This book was the book that opened my eyes to the intelligibility of Christianity and the spiritual gifts that can be found therein. I was quite a skeptic before reading this book. But, being a woman of my times, he spoke straight to the "hermeneutical gap" that exists for so many of us growing up in the postmodern philosophical paradigm.

Peters spoke at my seminary a few years after I got my hands on this book. A gifted Lutheran and a man who luckily does not have his head in the sand concerning contemporary plights and religious thought.
 
Excellent overview of current theo. Prolepsis explained.  Jun 20, 1997
This book is easily one of the best overviews of the history of theological thought currently available. It is especially useful in that Dr. Peters is one of the first to grapple with post-modern theological thinking and its implications. Dr. Peters is particularly insightful in his explication of prolepsis, the idea that God is drawing us all toward a future which God has envisioned. There will be much food for thought here, especially for those seeking some support of orthodoxy without closing the door to other theological trends. I have not only found it helpful for my own study, but have used it to help answer tough questions from my parishioners
