Believing Thinking, Bounded Theology
The Theological Methodology of Emil Brunner
Imprint: Pickwick Publications
"Cynthia Brown writes with clarity and passion about Emil Brunner's enduring significance for Christian thinking. If Christian theology is to survive and flourish it needs to pay close attention to its purpose and methodology as well as its dogmatic content. Brown makes a strong case for Brunner as a guide for those claimed by both the need to be faithful to Divine Revelation and the demand to pay heed to contemporary human experience."
--Richard Clutterbuck, Principal, Edgehill Theological College, Belfast
"Those of us who wonder whether theology today needs fewer and not more voices will make an immediate exception after reading Brown's volume. The author both rehabilitates this long-neglected theologian and persuades us that we neglect him today at our cost. With clarity and care, Brown reintroduces us to the thought of Brunner, once so influential on church and theology. We are edified and enriched."
--Stephen Williams, Professor of Systematic Theology, Union Theological College, Belfast
"A leading Reformed theologian of the twentieth century, Brunner was widely read by pastors across the world. Although his influence has declined in recent years, his ability to combine dogmatic and apologetic theology is of contemporary relevance. In this accessible and sympathetic study, Brown offers an important scholarly reappraisal of Brunner that will be of much value to a theological generation less acquainted with his writings."
--David Fergusson, Professor of Divinity and Principal of New College, University of Edinburgh
