Product Description

Coming from one of the preeminent Reformed theologians in the world today, Drawn to Freedom masterfully "converses" with the Heidelberg Catechism, showing how this classic 1563 church confession still speaks with powerful relevance to 21st Century Christianity. Eberhard Busch interacts with various theologians, philosophers, musicians, and scientists as he explores true freedom in relation to God, life-and-death comfort for believers, pertinent personal concerns and social issues, and rich gospel insights into the Christian life.

Publisher's Description

“The primary purpose of Drawn to Freedom is not to understand the Heidelberg Catechism,” Eberhard Busch explains, “but rather through it to understand what it means for us to believe in the merciful and just triune God. This is our God today, who always was our God, and will be our God tomorrow.” This book, then, is a carefully developed, wide-ranging exploration of what it means to be a Christian in today’s world.

“God is so committed to freedom,” writes Busch, “that he wants to give humans their own freedom.” To unfold what this proposition means for Christians, Busch reexamines the Heidelberg Catechism of 1563 from a modern perspective and uses its question-and-answer format to propose an understanding of God’s ways that still holds true for the twenty-first century. Busch also invites into the conversation past and present theologians, philosophers, musicians, and scientists with significant questions, objections, and alternative views. He probes such issues as self-understanding, personal worth, sin and forgiveness, hope and despair, and faith and love — all in relation to the freedom and deliverance that he believes God desires to afford us.

Editorial Reviews

“Karl Barth’s hope that a ‘theology of freedom’ would emerge in America has not yet been realized, but Barth’s last secretary and foremost interpreter, Eberhard Busch, points the way in Drawn to Freedom. Who would have thought that the Heidelberg Catechism has so much to say to us today about freedom and so much more? Busch is one of the most important contemporary voices in Reformed theology. He draws deep from the well of the Reformed tradition and, with penetrating analysis, engages in one of the most instructive, illuminating, and lively theological conversations of our day.”
— Richard Burnett
Erskine Theological Seminary

“Eberhard Busch writes lyrically about human freedom in relationship to God. But along the way it is the Heidelberg Catechism itself that gets liberated. Busch has freed the Catechism from its reputation of being outdated and fusty by showing the vibrant relevance of the Reformed tradition’s premier confession in answering questions people are still asking. The genius of the Catechism shines in this new book as we celebrate again the glorious gospel fact that God is always for us and with us, drawing us to the true freedom of belonging, which really is our only comfort in life and in death.”
— Scott Hoezee
Calvin Theological Seminary
