Christ, Justice, and Peace: Toward a Theology of the State

  • Author: Eberhard Jüngel

This examination takes the form of a critical theological analysis of the Barmen Theological Declaration - the courageous statement of faith produced in Germany in 1934 in the face of the rise of National Socialism. Jüngel explores in particular the fifth thesis, which concerns the state's God-given responsibility to safeguard justice and peace. One of the significant characteristics of this book is its concern to integrate the serious, academic commitment of theology in the service of truth with its necessary existential relationship to the pulpit. Without a coherent grasp of this the church degenerates into a 'characterless club for the cultivation of religion' while academic theology is reduced to a form of spineless irrelevance which shirks its responsibilities to the real world. Jüngel's concern is to offer a theology in which rigorous theological commitment and the spiritual life of the church are integrated.

This refreshing book makes significant contributions to the debate concerning the question of natural theology and divine decree, the Lutheran doctrine of the two regiments (kingdoms), the theological grounds of human rights, the ethics of the use of force by the state, the implications for just war theory of the nuclear capability and a whole range of other vital contemporary issues.

God as the Mystery of the World: On the Foundation of the Theology of the Crucified One in the Dispute Between Theism and Atheism

  • Author: Eberhard Jüngel
  • Publisher: T&T Clark

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

Jüngel sets out to establish a basis for a theology of God the crucified while avoiding the shoals of theism and atheism. He warns of the danger, rooted in the fact that modernity no longer dares to think God, of talking God to death, of silencing God with too much God-talk. Jüngel analyzes what our possibilities are of thinking and speaking God and concludes that theology has to become the narrative of God's humanity. This second book in the series helps the reader to gain a more explicit awareness of the contemporary issues Jüngel's theology grapples with.

Jüngel sets out in this work to establish a basis for a theology of God the crucified while avoiding the shoals of theism and atheism. He warns of the danger, rooted in the fact that modernity no longer dares to think about God, of talking God to death, of silencing God with too much God-talk. He analyses what our possibilities are of thinking and speaking God and concludes that theology has to become the narrative of God's humanity, told like every love story. This is a stimulating but demanding book. It helps theology to move forward again in its quest really to say what it talks about when it talks about God.

Starting with an analysis of the close relation of Trinity and revelation in Barth, Jüngel goes on to look at Barth's action of divine objectivity in relation to human subjectivity. He closes with a discussion of the ontological implications of God's self-manifestation at the Cross.

Eberhard Jüngel is widely recognized as one of the most important and original theologians of the twentieth-century. Although his essays comprise some of his best critical and constructive writing, few have been available in English. These eight essays have been carefully chosen to illustrate the wide range of Jüngel's current concerns - the ontological implications of the doctrine of justification, the nature of metaphorical and anthropomorphic language, theological anthropology, Christology and ecclesiology, and natural theology.

These essays combine theological wisdom with the perceptive biblical interpretation and philosophical richness. In many respects, the essay is the form in which Jüngel is at his best. He faces key issues, summarizes positions, develops one or two pivotal insights, and demonstrates wonderful conceptual creativity. This is the mature thought of a major theologian at its most concentrated and accessible.

This collection of basic essays by an eminent German theologian is a “must” for every theological library.
