The Authority of the Gospel : Explorations in Moral and Political Theology in Honor of Oliver O'Donovan Hardback

Edited by Brent Waters, Robert Song

Description

Oliver O'Donovan is widely regarded as one of the preeminent Protestant Christian ethicists of our time.

His teaching and scholarship have exerted a profound influence on countless moral theologians. This collection of essays honoring O'Donovan shows how the various contributors - themselves distinguished scholars - have developed their own thinking through serious engagement with O'Donovan's work.

More than simply assessing his work, this volume builds upon, expands, and even corrects a few lines of an agenda for Christian ethics that O'Donovan has been instrumental in building.

A probing essay by Oliver O'Donovan himself concludes the book. Contributors:Nigel Biggar, Brian Brock, Jonathan Chaplin, Eric Gregory, Shinji Kayama, Jean-Yves Lacoste, Joan O'Donovan, Oliver O'Donovan, Robert Song, Hans Ulrich, Bernd Wannenwetsch, Brent Waters, John Webster, Rowan Williams, John Witte Jr. and Holger Zaborowski
