This book is a stringent but genuine summons to let theology be about nothing less than God. It is the best account of what it means to be a theologian existentially since Karl Barth's Evangelical Theology. It is a much-needed antidote to theology's tragic loss of interest in God and Christ and calls out that God is summoning us to focus on thetruth that the eschaton (Christ himself) has broken in amoung us. This book offers a short account of the nature of Christian theology in a series of six lectures. John Webster explores the privilege of thinking and speaking of God in light of the staggerring good news of Jesus Christ. Webster proposes that we do theology well when we recognize the gospel as the most important reality. He considers the significance of church, Bible, and tradition as foundational to the unique cultural world the gospel brings into being, and he explores the challenges as well as the joys of inhabiting that sphere. Theology has particular responsibilities, in its academic conversation, in its self-criticism, and in its spiritual and moral life; at the heart of its calling lies prayer. John Webster, one of the world's leading systematic theologians, published extensively on the nature and practice of Christian theology. This work marked a turning point in Webster's theological development and is his most substantial statement on the task of theology. It shows why theology matters and why its pursuit is a demanding but exhilarating venture. Previously unavailable in book form, this magisterial statement, now edited and critically introduced for the first time, presents Webster's legendary lectures to a wider readership. It contains an extensive introductory essay by Ivor Davidson.
