Riassunto: To an increasing number of people these days, the announcement of God as a timeless immaterial substance, a single subject who is the predetermining cause of all things, does not sound like good news. Concerned that such problematic understandings of God continue to govern current debates, F. LeRon Shults explores the emerging theological revival of such themes as the Trinity and eschatology. Linking traditional attributes of God with contemporary philosophy, his book culminates with a reformed doctrine of God that revolves around themes of God's omniscient faithfulness, omnipotent love, and omnipresent hope.
Evangelical in conviction while engaged with a variety of Christian traditions, Shults navigates a faithful way between dismissing the biblical tradition and fossilizing it in early modern categories. Reforming the Doctrine of God marks an astute and much-needed reconstruction of Christian theology for our day.
From the Publisher:
Francis Schüssler Fiorenza
— Harvard Divnity School
"Reforming the Doctrine of God is a significant contribution to contemporary theology. Making personal relationality central to his interpretation of Christian doctrine, F. LeRon Shults brilliantly illumines not only the Christian understanding of God but also its significance for faith, hope, and love. It is astonishing how well he integrates biblical and historical resources with contemporary discussions. I recommend this book not only for students but also for anyone seeking a well-informed, balanced, and clearly written treatment of central Christian themes. This book is a must-read."
— Oxford University
"Another important contribution to theological reflection by this rising star. Shults’s careful study will be welcomed by all concerned with liberating the gospel from its past cultural imprisonments and ensuring its faithful proclamation in the present and the future."
— Norwegian Lutheran School of Theology
"F. LeRon Shults has written a book on God that opens up a new landscape in theology proper. Firmly grounded in tradition and resources offered by others, he develops an original argument for reforming the doctrine of God. Anyone who thinks that present theology is dated or a mere repetition of the past should reconsider that verdict after having read this book."
Daniel L. Migliore
— Princeton Theological Seminary
"Arguing that traditional formulations of the doctrine of God are inadequate both in light of the biblical witness and in the wake of the late modern ‘turn to relationality,’ Shults offers a bold reconstruction of the doctrine of God that centers on omniscient faithfulness, omnipotent love, and omnipresent hope. A notable addition to Shults’s ‘reforming Christian doctrine’ series."
Wesley J. Wildman
— Boston University
"Equally at home in the patristic, medieval, Reformation, and contemporary eras, F. LeRon Shults is a generous interpreter of the theologians he discusses. His creative reconstruction of the doctrine of God is worthy of close attention from all theologians committed to the ongoing task of interpreting the sacred texts and confessions of the Christian tradition."
