The Oxford Handbook of Systematic Theology brings together a set of original and authoritative accounts of all the major areas of current research in Christian systematic theology, offering a thorough survey of the state of the discipline and of its prospects for those undertaking research andteaching in the field. The Handbook engages in a comprehensive examination of themes and approaches, guiding the reader through current debates and literatures in the context of the historical development of systematic theological reflection. Organized thematically, it treats in detail the fullarray of topics in systematic theology, as well as questions of its sources and norms, its relation to other theological and non-theological fields of enquiry, and some major trends in current work. Each chapter provides an analysis of research and debate on its topic. The focus is on doctrinal(rather than historical) questions, and on major (rather than ephemeral) debates. The aim is to stimulate readers to reach theological judgements on the basis of consideration of the range of opinion. Drawn from Europe, the UK, and North America, the authors are all leading practitioners of thediscipline. Readers will find expert guidance as well as creative suggestions about the future direction of the study of Christian doctrine.
John Webster is Professor of Systematic Theology at the University of Aberdeen. Kathryn Tanner is Dorothy Grant Maclear Professor of Theology at the University of Chicago Divinity School. Iain Torrance is President and Professor of Patristics at Princeton Theological Seminary.
