Editorial Reviews


"In this analytically rigorous and deeply insightful work, Dr. van Driel zeroes in on central issues and takes them apart with exceptional ease and clarity. In and of itself, that is an extraordinary achievement, considering the complexity of thought of the figures he is engaging. This book makes an important original, creative, and compelling contribution to supralapsarian Christology." --Miroslav Volf, Henry B. Wright Professor of Systematic Theology, Yale Divinity School

"Van Driel's work is a rare example of theological construction that is rigorous and yet creative, that is definite and detailed as to is own conclusions, and that puts a surprising issue firmly on the table for contemporary theology, making an eloquent case for its importance. The book doesn't just open a new discussion, it positively advances it." --Paul DeHart, Vanderbilt University

"With a maestro's attention to the full orchestral breadth of the symphony that is systematic theology, van Driel's analysis reveals how God, in supralapsarian theories of the Incarnation, saturates ordinary life with Christological significance, revealing the resplendence of the everyday as we have it, and demonstrating 'the centrality of Christ to eschatological consummation,' which teaches us something about the destiny for which humanity is created. Historically informed yet never pedantic, theologically profound yet never obscure, this is a book from which students will profit and at which masters will marvel." --Charles Mathewes, University of Virginia

"[Van Driel's] construction is careful, clear, and elegant, drawing not only on theological tradition but also careful readings of biblical texts." --Religious Studies Review

"An important book that brings a whole set of ideas and concepts back into the contemporary theological conversation. . . professors, students, and ministers will all benefit from reading and engaging."--Center for Barth Studies, Princeton Theological Seminary
