Widely regarded as the foremost theologian in the world today, Wolfhart Pannenberg here unfolds his long-awaited systematic theology, for which his many previous (primarily methodological) writings have laid the groundwork.
Marked by a creative blend of philosophical, historical, anthropological, and exegetical analysis, Volume 1 focuses on the Christian doctrine of God, offering original material on the concept of truth, the nature of revelation, language about God, the nature of the Trinity, and the public aspect of theology.
Volume 2 of Pannenberg’s magnum opus moves beyond the highly touted discussion of systematic prolegomena and theology proper in Volume 1 to commanding, comprehensive statements concerning creation, the nature of man, Christology, and salvation. Throughout, Pannenberg brings to bear the vast command of historical and exegetical knowledge and philosophical argumentation for which he is well known.
The publication of Volume 3 of German theologian Wolfhart Pannenberg’s Systematic Theology completes the English edition of a work that will surely come to stand as one of the lasting theological statements of the twentieth century.
