At the current price, Remythologizing Theology will only be purchased by a few, though seminary libraries will be deficient without it. Hopefully, it will reach paperback edition soon, enabling users to benefit more fully from one of today's leading evangelical theologians who is beginning to make significant strides in developing a classical Reformed evangelical theology in the present context. This volume will repay huge dividends to the diligent reader.

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0521470129, Hardcover)

The rise of modern science and the proclaimed 'death' of God in the nineteenth century led to a radical questioning of divine action and authorship - Bultmann's celebrated 'demythologizing'. Remythologizing Theology, first published in 2010, moves in another direction that begins by taking seriously the biblical accounts of God's speaking. It establishes divine communicative action as the formal and material principle of theology, and suggests that interpersonal dialogue, rather than impersonal causality, is the keystone of God's relationship with the world. This original contribution to the theology of divine action and authorship develops a fresh vision of Christian theism. It also revisits several long-standing controversies such as the relations of God's sovereignty to human freedom, time to eternity, and suffering to love. Groundbreaking and thought-provoking, it brings theology into fruitful dialogue with philosophy, literary theory, and biblical studies.
