This is the first, and most referred to, Christian systemic theology to make clear for the Church the relevance of the continuing existence of the Jewish people to every aspect of its theolgy. The three volumes set out to correct a major and central deficiency in the field: that the continuing existence of Israel, the people of God and the people of Jesus, whose ancestors produced by far the largest part of the Church's Bible, and who have lived by the covenant of those Scriptures through the ages, has been either ignored or treated negatively. A Theology of the Jewish-Christian Reality continues to stimulate fresh thinking about the foundations for responsible theological reflection. This opening volume explores the implications of the Church's own confession that the God it worships is the God of Israel. Just this truth, it is argued, is expressed in the Church's doctrine of the Trinity, and it grounds the further reflections on the Church's identity, on the Bible, on revelation and on redemption. Originally published in 1983 by Harper and Row Publishers.
