Product Description

Christ, Providence & History is the first full study of the whole of Hans Frei's work. Higton draws on a wide range of unpublished material in the Frei archives to present a comprehensive, fresh, and original interpretation of Frei's theology. He places Frei's well-known work on biblical hermeneutics firmly in the context of his theological wrestling with Barth and of the dominant traditions of Western Protestant theology. Higton presents an unprecedented portrait of Frei as a theologian fundamentally concerned with the ability of theology to speak about, and to, the public world as well as to regard that world as providentially ordered in Jesus Christ, while celebrating its concrete contingency and freedom. Frei emerges not just as a powerful historian of theology, but as a persuasive theologian of history.
