All Things New
The Trinitarian Nature of the Human Calling in Maximus the Confessor and Jürgen Moltmann
Imprint: Pickwick Publications
"A model of creative theological retrieval, All Things New makes a compelling case for understanding human identity and vocation as profoundly Trinitarian and christological. It presents a beautifully contemplative vision of the human person, arguing that it is the quality and depth of our attention to divine mystery that enables us to understand who we are and how we should live. An original and important work."
--Douglas E. Christie, professor, Theological Studies, Loyola Marymount University, Los Angeles, CA
"In this important book, Brock Bingaman brings Maximus the Confessor and Jurgen Moltmann into constructive dialogue. Without in any way trying to disguise the very different idioms in which they think, Bingaman shows how both Maximus and Moltmann base their reflections on the human calling and destiny in the doctrine of the Trinity and the Paschal mystery of Christ. It is a rich and stimulating work."
--Andrew Louth, Professor emeritus of Patristic and Byzantine Studies, Durham University, Durham, UK
"Bingaman's comparative study of Maximus the Confessor's and Jurgen Moltmann's theological anthropology continues a long-standing tradition of fruitful dialogue between Eastern Orthodox and Reformed theologies. Wide-ranging and evocative in its analysis, All Things New offers its readers ancient wisdom coupled with fresh ecological impulses for understanding the human calling in a Trinitarian framework today."
--Joy Ann McDougall, Associate Professor of Systematic Theology, Candler School of Theology, Emory University, Atlanta, GA
