Product Description

The truth of God is rich and multifaceted. Though a coherent body of revelation, the Bible comes to us through a variety of inspired authors, metaphors, and themes highlighting the many facets of God's truth. Likewise, our theological formulations capture manifold emphases - distinct "perspectives" on the whole - which collectively enable us to gain a fuller understanding of the truth. Polythress explains, "We use what we have gained from one perspective to reinforce, correct, or improve what we understood through another. I call this procedure 'symphonic theology' because it is analogous to a blending to express the variation of a symphonic theme." Special features include: Accents distinct but harmonious perspectives in the Word and theology; Applies the best insights of linguistics to theological thought; and includes a test case involving the question of miracles.

Publisher's Description

The truth of God is rich and multifaceted. Though a coherent body of revelation, the Bible comes to us through a variety of inspired authors, metaphors, and themes highlighting the many facets of God's truth. Likewise, our theological formulations capture manifold emphases--distinct "perspectives" on the whole--which collectively enable us to gain a fuller understanding of the truth. Poythress explains, "We use what we have gained from one perspective to reinforce, correct, or improve what we understood through another. I call this procedure 'symphonic theology' because it is analogous to a blending of various musical instruments to express the variation of a symphonic theme." The implications of this approach are far-reaching for theology and praxis.
