Book Description

Based on one of the greatest living theologians, Wolfhart Pannenberg, this book is the first comprehensive study of 'human destiny'. Mapping out the movement of humanity over the course of its history to its common destiny from creation through sin and ethics to eschatology, the book also examines the extent to which scholars such as Herder have influenced Pannenberg's work in this important area and shows how Pannenberg's project on ethics is related to human destiny.

Table of Contents

Reviews

'This is a thoroughly researched and meticulously argued treatment which will be of interest not only to students of Pannenberg’s work but to all who are concerned for what Christian theology has to say about human nature and history.' John Webster, King's College, Aberdeen, UK 'This volume offers an impressively thorough analysis which makes a valuable contribution to the study of Pannenberg's theology.' George Newlands, University of Glasgow, UK ’... you will not find a more extensive discussion of Pannenberg's view of the image of God.’ Theology Forum
