Divine Glory and the Silence of the CrosseBook - 2014
"The modern and contemporary legacy of Luther's theology is a vital topic of continuing investigation, assessment, and construction. Rupturing Eschatology is Eric Trozzo's constructive retrieval of Luther's theology of the cross for the purpose of establishing a contemporary Lutheran and "emerging" account of the cross, silence, and eschatology. Seeking to overcome a tendency toward extrinsic notions of divine glory and transformation, the author explores Luther's early construction of the theology of the cross and divine hiddenness in concert with the work of the Lutheran mystical tradition and modern Lutheran theology, such as Jurgen Moltmann, Paul Tillich, and John Caputo. Trozzo argues for an intra-historical and intra-worldly account of divine possibility oriented around a contemporary theology of the cross marked by reclamation of the biblical and mystical practice of silence as the space that creates hope."-- Provided by publisher.
