Product Description

* Translated into English for the first time, Schleiermacher's essay elucidates his view of election as consisting of a single divine decree that embraces all humanity---a theological development that later influenced Karl Barth. He also examines this doctrine in light of the New Testament and confessional traditions to encourage unification between Lutherans and the Reformed. 160 pages, softcover from Westminster John Knox.

Publisher's Description

This book offers the first English translation of Friedrich Schleiermacher's "On the Doctrine of Election" (1819), a historic and influential essay published just before the first edition of Schleiermacher's magisterial systematic theology: The Christian Faith. In this essay, Schleiermacher develops a view of election as consisting of a single divine decree of both election and rejection that embraces all humanity--a theological development that became basic later for Karl Barth's treatment of election (Church Dogmatics II/2). Schleiermacher also seeks to support the church union movement between Lutherans and the Reformed by examining the doctrine of election in light of the New Testament and historic confessional traditions. This edition is enhanced by the translators' incisive introduction and a foreword by noted Schleiermacher scholar Terrence N. Tice.
