On Monday, 29th of June, in St Andrews we were thrilled to present Professor John Webster with the volume published to acknowledge his significant achievements in theology, 'Theological Theology. Essays in the Honour of John Webster.'
The big [and it really is a substantial volume] book was put together by the three editors, who were John Webster’s students – Justin Stratis, Darren Sarisky and R. David Nelson. The title ‘Theological Theology’ has been taken from the inaugural lecture delivered by John Webster in 1997, when he became the Lady Margaret Professor of Divinity at the University of Oxford.
The volume includes essays written by eminent systematic theologians, theological ethicists, and biblical scholars from a wide range of Christian traditions. And all of these contributions express a deep gratitude for Webster's work in the areas of the nature and method of theology, Scripture and its interpretation, Christology, and the reading and use of theological dialogue partners.
I am including here a photo of John, Darren, Justin and David:
‘This rich and diverse collection of essays in Christian doctrine offers a fulsome and fitting tribute to one of the most significant voices in contemporary systematic theology, a scholar and disciple whose dogmatic insight, gracious collegiality, and cheerful witness has inspired and nourished so many over the years. Addressing in various ways the scriptural foundations and central teachings of the Christian faith, the contributions to this excellent volume attend to matters of doctrinal import that have occupied the work of John Webster for many years, and – in the good providence of God – will continue to do so for many years to come.’ Professor Paul T. Nimmo, University of Aberdeen, UK.
This volume will be available to you all from the 27th August 2015
