Description

This study tackles the criticisms of the vocation tradition, particularly by Miroslav Volf, arguing that they are largely true of the relatively conservative Lutheran vocation tradition based on creation theology. It examines three 20th century theologians - Gustaf Wingren, Karl Barth and Jurgen Moltmann - to see the ways in which their theological anchorage to one person of the Trinity or article of the Creed shapes their theologies of work and vocation.

Contents

Wingren's first article theology; Wingren's creation based vocation theology; Barth's second article theology; Barth's Christocentric theology of work and vocation; Moltmann's third article theology; a pneumatological theology of work and vocation; conclusion - toward a theology of callings and gifts.
