Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

This work seeks to create a via media between the tradition of divine impassibility and the contemporary preference for divine passibility within formal theological reflection. Rather than dismissing divine impassibility as a Hellenized and antiquated notion, the author seeks to reconfigure how this axiom functioned for the early church as a way to complement and deepen the present tendency toward divine passibility. At stake in these discussions is not only the coherence of God-talk across time but also what Christians take to be their guiding vision of God's character and action in the world, a vision that inevitably determines the shape of Christian discipleship.

About the Author

Daniel Castelo is Associate Professor of Theology at Seattle Pacific Seminary and University. His first book, The Apathetic God, won the 2011 Templeton Award for Theological Promise.

More About the Author

Daniel Castelo is a Christian theologian who researches and writes broadly in the areas of mystical, dogmatic, and moral theology. He finds the sequence theo-logical in that the divine encounter with the triune God (mystical theology) drives the need and desire to speak of this Holy One (dogmatic theology) and to seek the implications and form of being-in-the-world in a Christ-shaped and Spirit-empowered way (moral theology); he sees these as mutually conditioning and trialectically self-correcting activities. His particular interests include divine attribution, pneumatology, the theological interpretation of Scripture, practical theodicy, and Latin@ theology.

He is presently Associate Professor of Dogmatic and Constructive Theology at Seattle Pacific University and Seminary in Seattle, WA.
