Adam Neder’s stellar Participation in Christ
I’ve been so enjoying Neder’s little book which can be purchased here. I highly recommend it!
Some nuggets from chapter 1:
“[R]evelation is not merely the offering and acquisition of information. It is rational, to be sure … [b]ut since it is Dei loquentis persona, it is an event in which God establishes an orderly fellowship between himself and human beings … Thus revelation is inseparable from reconciliation”
“Jesus Christ creates disciples as he becomes Lord of their existence, not as he becomes part of their existence”
“Faith looks to Jesus Christ, not to itself, and should it decide to contemplate itself, it would find only darkness”What I found most helpful in chap 1 was the explanation of Barth’s rejection of the analogia entis, a position that Barth derived from the nature of God’s grace as evident in the event of revelation.
