Product Description

The Resurrected God is an exciting, innovative examination of the resurrection of Christ and its relationship to the doctrine of the Trinity in the mature work of Karl Barth, particularly across the three parts of Volume IV of Church Dogmatics. John Drury argues that, for Barth, the subject and basis of Christ's resurrection is the Triune God. The volume demonstrates that Barth explicated the doctrine of Christ's resurrection through a unique Trinitarian grammar and grounds the event of the resurrection in the eternal triune being of God.

Closely expositing and analyzing Barth's deployment of this Trinitarian grammar in the fourth volume, the author turns to a constructive reconsideration of Barth's earlier doctrine of the Trinity in the first volume, examining that material in light of the concept of God operative in the later work. Thinking with and beyond Barth, the author concludes that resurrection is inextricably linked with the Triune life of the God who raises and is raised.

Endorsements

Admirably combining attention to detail and interpretive skill, John Drury follows Barth's 'Trinitarian grammar' of the Scriptural witness to the resurrection of Christ to its 'Trinitarian ground.' No less than the event of the cross, Drury argues, the Easter event for Barth has its basis in and corresponds to the triune life of God as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Drury's work is an impressive addition to recent studies of Barth's theology.
-Daniel Migliore,
Princeton Theological Seminary

In this rich and brilliantly argued work, John Drury shows that Karl Barth understood Christ's resurrection in terms of a Trinitarian theology of Easter. Barth therefore offered a dialectical account involving three complementary perspectives on one and the same Easter event. From the standpoint of the Father, Jesus Christ was raised (IV/1); from the standpoint of the Son, he arises (IV/2); and from the standpoint of the Spirit, he makes himself present (IV/3). This original, meticulous, and groundbreaking analysis casts great light on Barth's mature theology, most especially his later doctrine of the Trinity and his (much-maligned) doctrine of the Holy Spirit.
-George Hunsinger,
Princeton Theological Seminary

Drury's presentation of Barth's theology of Christ's resurrection is concise and illuminating. Through a close analysis of the transitional discussions of Barth's doctrine of reconciliation, and in conversation with an impressive range of scholarship, Drury sets forth what he calls 'the Trinitarian grammar' of Barth's theology of Christ's resurrection. Along the way, he shows how for Barth the distinct modes of participation of the Father, Son, and Spirit in the Easter event are grounded in and correspond to GodÂ’s eternal triune life. An impressive achievement.
