This year's winners of the Templeton Award for Theological Promise have been announced. We are very happy and proud that again among them is one of our authors: Paul Dafydd Jones was awarded the prize for his book The Humanity of Christ. Congratulations!
This is what the jury writes about the book:
The monograph offers offers a fresh reading of Karl Barth's mature Christology. Engaging the entirety of the Church Dogmatics, the book considers Barth's doctrine of election, with particular attention paid to the Son's "being in becoming" as an event of divine self-determination; uncovers a rich understanding of Christ's human being and acting as a history of wholeheartedness, sovereignty, love, and deliverance; and advances a bold analysis of Christ's atoning death, focusing particularly on Christ's decision to bear God's rejection of sin. The conclusion of the book reflects on the significance of Barth's work for Christian thought, spirituality and ethics in the present day.

Last year, another T&T Clark author was among those winning the award: Paul T. Nimmo for his book Being in Action
