"Vissers' splendid study of Walter Bryden introduces a new generation to the importance of a leading scholar who in the 1930s introduced the emerging 'neo-orthodoxy' of Karl Barth to the Canadian church and to key students who themselves became significant theologians. Reacting to the idealism and rationalism of his times, in sharp contrast to the prevailing Liberal Theology, Bryden - like Barth - emphasized God's definitive revelation in Jesus Christ who pronounces a Judging-Saving Word to the world. A theology of God's Word and Spirit is the true source for the church's renewal. Bryden's influence in the Canadian Presbyterian Church was monumental as he worked out the implications of Barth's theological approach for his Canadian context. Vissers' study engagingly conveys the thought and influence of Bryden who called the church to theological engagement with issues that are still of vital importance today." - Donald K. McKim

"Vissers' lucid and well-documented study of this important Protestant scholar will help greatly to re-establish Bryden's place in the evolution of Christian theology in the Canadian context."
Douglas John Hall CM, Emeritus Professor of Christian Theology, McGill University

"Vissers' splendid study of Walter Bryden introduces a new generation to the importance of a leading scholar who in the 1930s introduced the emerging 'neo-orthodoxy' of Karl Barth to the Canadian church and to key students who themselves became significant theologians. Reacting to the idealism and rationalism of his times, in sharp contrast to the prevailing Liberal Theology, Bryden - like Barth - emphasized God's definitive revelation in Jesus Christ who pronounces a Judging-Saving Word to the world. A theology of God's Word and Spirit is the true source for the church's renewal. Bryden's influence in the Canadian Presbyterian Church was monumental as he worked out the implications of Barth's theological approach for his Canadian context. Vissers' study engagingly conveys the thought and infl uence of Bryden who called the church to theological engagement with issues that are still of vital importance today."
Donald K. McKim, editor of The Encyclopedia of the Reformed Faith

"John Vissers offers a compelling analysis of the work of a key figure in the history of Canadian Protestant theology and church life in the first half of the twentieth century. Bryden's preoccupation with, and love for the gospel of revelation, learned in part from engagement with Barth, and his deep sense of the gospel's power transfigure philosophical and theological thought, the mission of the church, and the life of society, are all laid out with clarity and discrimination, and with comprehensive awareness of their setting in the history of Canadian Christianity. If theology and the church often find their way forward by listening to past testimonies, Bryden's work surely deserves the attentive recall which this book presents."
Professor John Webster, King's College Aberdeen

"Vissers' study engagingly conveys the thought and influence of Bryden who called the church to theological engagement with issues that are still of vital importance today."

Das Dateiformat PDF zeigt auf jeder Hardware eine Buchseite stets identisch an. Daher ist eine PDF auch für ein komplexes Layout geeignet, wie es bei Lehr- und Fachbüchern verwendet wird (Bilder, Tabellen, Spalten, Fußnoten). Bei kleinen Displays von E-Readern oder Smartphones sind PDF leider eher nervig, weil zu viel Scrollen notwendig ist. Mit Adobe-DRM wird hier ein "harter" Kopierschutz verwendet. Wenn die notwendigen Voraussetzungen nicht vorliegen, können Sie das E-Book leider nicht öffnen. Daher müssen Sie bereits vor dem Download Ihre Lese-Hardware vorbereiten.
