Divine Sovereignty and Human Responsibility: Biblical Perspectives in Tension

  • Author: D.A. Carson
  • Publisher: Wipf & Stock
  • Publication Date: 2002
  • Pages: 284

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

Both theology and philosophy wrestle with the tension between divine sovereignty and human responsibility. In Christianity, this tension is particularly acute because God is both omnipotent and benevolent.

This tension underlies numerous other questions about the nature of God, the meaning of free will and choice, the concept of divine repentance, the reign of God, and perhaps most of all, the significance of the incarnation.

Renowned scholar D.A. Carson brings clear insights and finely-honed exegetical skills to this important issue. In his treatment, the tension between divine sovereignty and human responsibility is not so much as a problem to be solved as a framework to be explored.

Biblical Interpretation and the Church: The Problem of Contextualization

  • Editor: D.A. Carson

  • Publication Date: 2002

All too often, problems of biblical hermeneutics are so closely tied to technical biblical study that it’s difficult to see their relationship to day-to-day issues confronting the church. Here, eight international scholars from seven countries demonstrate the vital relevance of hermeneutics to everyday church life and ministry. The writers focus on the biblical doctrine of the church and how the church carries out its mission in various cultures.

Originally presented as lectures at Tyndale House in Cambridge, England, these essays have been revised in light of the discussion and criticism that followed. They include careful biblical analyses of the nature of the church, its opponents, and of such modern concerns as social justice and liberation theology. The result is a stimulating reassessment of the role that Scripture plays in bringing Christ to persons within their cultural contexts.
