In this innovative work in theological method and hermeneutics, Michael S. Horton uses the motif of the covenant as a way of binding together God's "word" and God's "act." Seeking an integration of theological method with the content of Christian theology, Horton emphasizes God's covenant as God's way of working for redemption in the world. Horton maintains a substantial dialogue with important philosophical figures and Christian theologians, ultimately providing scholars and serious students a significant model for approaching and understanding Christian theology.
Steve Duby5 Stars Out Of 5October 18, 2008Steve DubyCovenant and Eschatology is a significant proposal for theological prolegomena. Horton labors to demonstrate the importance of a robust conception of redemption history for properly engaging the discipline of Christian theology. At the heart of the book is a fresh construal of how God acts and speaks on the stage of world history, but along the way Horton offers penetrating analysis of developments in modern theology. Among other things, I appreciate his thoughts on the relationship between redemption and revelation, the nature of theological language, and the hermeneutical enterprise. Anyone interested in theological method and/or trends in modern theology would do well to get their hands on this book!
