IJST

One of the significant aspects of Colin Gunton’s legacy is the International Journal of Systematic Theology, which Gunton helped to found back in 1999 as a way of promoting the development of constructive and substantive (not merely methodological) dogmatic theology. Since beginning just seven years ago, the journal has become one of the world’s best forums for contemporary constructive theology—it is now my own favourite journal, and it’s one of the only journals that I always read from cover to cover.

The new issue, 8:3 (July 2006), is exceptionally good:

Karl Barth's Christology as a Resource for a Reformed Version of Kenoticism
McCORMACK, BRUCE L.

Violence in Bloomsbury: A Theological Challenge
DAVIES, OLIVER

Accommodation to What? Univocity of Being, Pure Nature, and the Anthropology of St Irenaeus
BOERSMA, HANS

The Trinity, Election and God's Ontological Freedom: A Response to Kevin W. Hector
MOLNAR, PAUL D.

Actualism and Incarnation: The High Christology of Friedrich Schleiermacher
HECTOR, KEVIN W.

There are also some excellent reviews of new books about Hans Urs von Balthasar and Karl Barth.

I had to chuckle when I saw the title of Boersma's article. Not only did I hear his inaugeral address but I have taken a few courses with him since then and he is often talking about Irenaeus, Scotus, univocity of being and so on. So, when I saw the title of the article I thought, "Here we go again!" Of course don't get me wrong, Boersma is a bright guy, an exciting prof, and he's challenged me in a lot of ways.
