Symphonic Theology: The Validity of Multiple Perspectives in Theology

Poythress, Vern S.

Product Description

Publisher Review:

The truth of God is rich and multifaceted. Though a coherent body of revelation, the Bible comes to us through a variety of inspired authors, metaphors, and themes highlighting the many facets of God's truth. Likewise, our theological formulations capture manifold emphases - distinct "perspectives" on the whole - which collectively enable us to gain a fuller understanding of the truth. Poythress explains, "We use what we have gained from one perspective to reinforce, correct, or improve what we understood through another. I call this procedure "symphonic theology" because it is analogous to a blending of various musical instruments to express the variation of a symphonic theme."
