If theology at its most sensible is understanding God and all issues within the mild of his truth, what's the nature of that wisdom? Of what will we verify? Are there barriers we needs to appreciate in pursuit of such figuring out? To what quantity do we understand God, and what's the influence of that knowing?

Little cognizance has been given in fresh scholarship to the paintings of Emil Brunner (1889-1966), a Swiss pastor, professor, missionary, and theologian whose identify is assessed one of the neo-orthodox thinkers of the final century. This lacuna is deceptive, although, for his effect on smooth theology persists. In Believing considering, Bounded Theology, Cynthia Bennett Brown explores the character of and boundaries to theological pondering in Brunner's personal paintings. What effects from this learn is an come across with a completely biblical, warmly pastoral, rigorously highbrow, and insistently christocentric exposition of the Christian religion that is still suitable for theology and existence today.
