Introduction1. Critically Idealistic Dialectical Theology?2. Law and Revelation3. Theology's Two Tasks4. Nature and Grace5. ConclusionBibliographyIndex
A detailed and much needed account of Emil Brunner's earlier theology and his emphasis on the dialectical relationship between law and gospel.
David Andrew Gilland teaches at Leuphana University, Luneberg, Germany. He received a MTS from Wesley Theological Seminary in Washington, DC and a PhD in Systematic Theology from the University of Aberdeen, UK.
Contemporary theology has often focused upon the work of Barth to
the exclusion of Brunner. This volume offers a well-researched
healthy counterbalance to that trend. -- Timothy Shaun Price,
Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary, US * Theological Book
[A] notable entry into this growing literature ... [R]igorous and densely packed ... [and] quite successful. * Journal of Theological Studies *
The level of depth explored by Gilland is marvelous. Certainly, this is a careful approach to Brunner and dialectic theology as relates to law and gospel. It is truly within the study of law and gospel that Gilland hits his highest note. Any student of Brunner or law and gospel will find this to be a book that deserves a thorough reading. -- Roger Fears * Wartburg Theological Seminary *
