Overview

In this two volume collection of essays, which forms a companion to The Domain of the Word, John Webster brings together studies of a range of topics in dogmatic and moral theology.

Each of the essays explores the relation of theology proper to economy, and together they pose an understanding of Christian doctrine in which all theological teaching flows from the doctrine of the immanent Trinity.

Praise for the Print Edition

Webster’s untimely death prevented him from completing his larger systematic project, and these two volumes can only whet the appetite of those who looked forward to that project. Yet, they may also stir up a thirst for something much greater than his dogmatics or any work of pilgrim theology for that matter. They may stir up a thirst for the living waters, and in so doing encourage pilgrims on their journey toward the visio Dei.

Individual Titles

God without Measure: Working Papers in Christian Theology, vol. 1: God and the Works of God

  • Author: John Webster
  • Publisher: T&T Clark
  • Publication Date: 2015
  • Pages: 256

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

God Without Measure: God and the Works of God, treats the themes of God’s inner being and God's outer acts. After an overall account of the relation between God in himself and the economy of God's external works, there are studies of the divine aseity and of the theology of the eternal Son. These are followed by a set of essays on creation out of nothing; the relation between God and God's creatures; the nature of providence; the relation of soteriology and the doctrine of God; and the place of teaching about justification in Christian theology.

God Without Measure is a mature work of theological revival. Many of these essays are jewels in their own right, yet when read together they reveal the working of a first-class theological mind in its prime developing a consistent conception of the task of systematics and directed at matters of first theology: God's life in itself and then towards the world.

—Kevin J. Vanhoozer, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School

God Without Measure: Working Papers in Christian Theology, vol. 2: Virtue and Intellect

  • Author: John Webster
  • Publisher: T&T Clark
  • Publication Date: 2015
  • Pages: 192

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

In this second volume, Webster progresses the discussion to include topics in moral theology, and the theology of created intellect. An opening chapter sets the scene by considering the relation of christology and moral theology. This is followed by a set of reflections on a range of ethical themes: the nature of human dignity; mercy; the place of sorrow in Christian existence; the nature of human courage; dying and rising with Christ as a governing motif in the Christian moral life; the presence of sin in human speech. Webster closes with studies of the nature of intellectual life and of the intellectual task of Christian theology.

John Webster has few peers, and this book serves further notice to the extraordinary breadth and calibre of his theological project. Always in service to Jesus Christ, Webster lays our basic components of the moral life, seamlessly and astutely drawing upon the Fathers, Aquinas, Calvin, John Owen, and Barth. One reads Webster with amazement and appreciation that theology, in a time of much superficiality, can again be so deeply and richly theocentric. This is a work of a contemporary master to whom all Christians must attend.

—Matthew Levering, University of Dayton
