Product Description

An addition to Blackwell's Challenges in Theology series, this book makes a major contribution to contemporary theological and philosophical debates, bridging scriptural and metaphysical approaches to the triune God.

It bridges the gap between scriptural and metaphysical approaches to biblical narratives. Levering retrieves Aquinas's understanding of theology as contemplative wisdom and structures his work around Aquinas's treatise on the triune God in his 'Summa Theologiae.' The author argues that intellectual contemplation is part of a broader spiritual journey towards a better understanding of God. Scripture and Metaphysics contributes to the current resurgence of Thomistic theology in both Protestant and Catholic circles.

Editorial Reviews

“Levering’s Introduction did not fail to stimulatemy interest. Probably of greatest interest will be interactionswith some of the renowned Jewish and Christian exegetes in thechapters to come.” (AMAIC Philosophy, 8 February2013)

"… lucidly written, thoroughly documented, an astonishingachievement." Fergus Kerr OP, Blackfriars, Oxford

 

"A substantive contribution to Trinitarian theology, and anexemplification of how theology ought to be done." William T.Cavanaugh, University of St Thomas

 

"Matthew Levering is not content with merely explaining thegenuine teaching of St. Thomas Aquinas but also makes him an activepartner in today's theological debate. With both a critical mindand a deep sense of Christian tradition, Levering offers the moststimulating introduction to Aquinas's Trinitarian theologyavailable today." Gilles Emery, OP, Professor of DogmaticTheology, University of Fribourg

"...in eloquently and clearly setting Aquinas over against manyof the most influential voices in theology today, and showing hisrelevance by liberating him from stereotypicals dismissals,Scripture and Metaphysics lays a path for furtherinvestigation that will be fruitful for those who follow it."Journal of Ecclesiastical History
