Revelation and the Spirit
A Comparative Study of the Relationship between the Doctrine of Revelation and Pneumatology of the Theology of Eberhard Jungel and Wolfhart Pannenberg
Imprint: Wipf and Stock
"Graham Watts has provided a useful service to the theological readership by giving us this careful, critical and comparative study of Jungel and Pannenberg, focused on the doctrines of revelation and the Spirit. Drawing on the important contemporary critics, notably Jenson, Dalferth, Schwoebel, Torrance and Gunton, he teases out some interesting interpretative insights and gives readers helpful and accurate exposition in so doing."
--Timothy Bradshaw, Regent's Park College, Oxford, UK
"The tendency of much writing on the Spirit has been to fall either into abstruse, amorphous speculation or overly subjective accounts of religious experience. This book obviates both failings. It is a theologically profound but also highly focused treatment of the concrete reality of the Spirit in God's Self-disclosure. This is an invaluable resource for academics, students and theologically engaged ministers alike."
--Alan J. Torrance, Chair of Systematic Theology, St Mary's College, University of St Andrews, Scotland
"Both Pannenberg's and Jungel's theologies pose a considerable challenge for the theological enquirer. Graham Watts has done a great service as with lucidity and facility he clarifies the thinking of these two contemporary theologians, displays the significance of their respective theological work and enables readers to benefit from their profound theological insight. This is a skillful and coherent piece of work which will add to more general theological appreciation of their contribution and will enrich many."
