Hallowed Be Thy Name: The Sanctification of All in the Soteriology of P. T. Forsyth

Front Cover
Bloomsbury Publishing, Mar 28, 2013 - Religion - 320 pages
This book fills a noticeable gap in Forsyth studies. It
provides readers interested in the thought of Forsyth with a way of reading and
critiquing his corpus, and that in a way that takes due account of, and
elucidates, the theological, philosophical and historical locale of his
thought. Goroncy explores whether the notion of ‘hallowing' provides a
profitable lens through which to read and evaluate Forsyth's soteriology. He suggests
that the hallowing of God's name is, for Forsyth, the way whereby God both
justifies himself and claims creation for divine service. This book proposes
that reading Forsyth's corpus as essentially an exposition of the first
petition of the Lord's Prayer is an invitation to better comprehend not only
his soteriology but also, by extension, his broader theological vision and
interests.
