If God were to withhold his ruach Job ff , we would die. Further, a ruach or a pneuma is not the independent creaturely station. While Paul does speak of human beings as spirit, soul, body, he makes several moves which prove difficult for seeing spirit as soul. His unique insight is that a theology of the image of God must be linked to human destiny. This avoids certain conceptual pitfalls in both the Patristics and Post-Reformation thinkers.

It also has a Christological thrust to it. Any such historical presentation would also have a systemic character This assumes an inner relation between Jesus himself and the apostolic proclamation of Jesus. The link lies in the eschatological event of the death of Christ. It also the future restoration Those who believe in them have this future already. The Resurrection of Jesus forms the starting point of the apostolic message ff. The Easter-event determines the pre-Easter message. Metaphorical language was necessary because this was a unique event.
The Resurrection is a Jewish concept. The earliest critics of the Resurrection acknowledged the empty tomb. The debated question was what it meant. Apr 16, Ken McGuire rated it really liked it. I may be a bit harsh in giving this 4 stars. I want to give it more, but not sure I understand in well enough to give it 5 stars.
I certainly haven't lived it enough for that yet.
In this volume, Pannenberg gives his perspective on Creation, Anthropology, and Christology. As the reader comes to expect by now, he interacts with an extensive list of figures. Since he has written full scale monographs on Theological Anthropology and Christology already, either because of this or because I may be a bit harsh in giving this 4 stars.
Since he has written full scale monographs on Theological Anthropology and Christology already, either because of this or because I have been influenced by people that have been quite influenced by those works, this volume reads much easier to me than Vol. Back when I first read his An Introduction to Systematic Theology , I was confused about his connection between Spirit in theological language and Field in the language of Physics — something he also spoke of in Vol.

I assumed that it would become clearer what he meant when he got to his loci on Creation. But I remain confused. Does he mean Classical fields like Maxwell? What he says almost makes sense with Classical fields, but with Quantum Mechanical fields and their exchange particles, does this really transcend the materialism of the Stoic concepts behind Fields?
Pannenberg has been so active in the discussion between Theology and the Sciences that I am sure that the confusion is mine and that someone who understands the Physics side of things would have called him on this by now. But if I, with a Physics minor behind me, am confused, how useful is this connection? His comments on Theological Anthropology in the light of both Creation and the new Adam of Christ are good — and worth going over again. I very much might read his Anthropology in Theological Perspective some day for more of it.
It was in the area of Christology where Pannenberg made much of his early theological reputation. And his comments on this show it. This perspective has been useful for so many Christians, that any treatment of Christology today should almost certainly interact with him. And yet this is the section I wish he interacted more with classical Christology. After seeing his extensive interaction with these sources in the Doctrine of God in volume one, I was expecting similar interaction with the great Christological councils, and more discussion about the post-Reformation debates.
Instead, there were only a few comments about Alexandrian and Antiochian tendencies and about some theology since Hegel speaking more about God suffering than the Formula of Concord does. In reading him, have grown to expect more.
Systematic Theology, Volume 2
He ends with a discussion of what the Gospel is and means. Some good stuff here, but it needs to be expanded for clarity. All in all, a very good read, even if not the easiest one. It gives me much to think about. Systematically it makes more sense to me than Vol. But it enables me to think more and grow. Oct 23, Joseph Sverker added it Shelves: theology. It is a little bit difficult to understand how it is even possible to do research on this scholarly level and to do it consistently over so many areas of theology.
After having read this volume I'm kind of pressed to agree that if someone says, particularly on a historical point, Pannenberg says, well then it is correct. Or, I would have a very difficult time to prove it wrong anyway. Then when it comes to some theological issues, I might disagree, but this is such an impressive achievement that It is a little bit difficult to understand how it is even possible to do research on this scholarly level and to do it consistently over so many areas of theology.
Then when it comes to some theological issues, I might disagree, but this is such an impressive achievement that it is worth reading simply for that reason. Although, it simply takes a very long time and it should be said that it is dry stuff, but still German theology at its best as well. His thoughts of the Bible that it is to the extent that it witness to the Gospel that it is authoritative over the Church is very interesting, sort of tautologous, but interesting and I hope he develops it in the third volume. But that is for a little later.
Now I must read something slightly lighter for a while like Kant, Hegel or Wittgenstein! Jun 24, Charles Puskas rated it really liked it.

Throughout, Pannenberg brings to bear his impressive command of historical and exegetical knowledge and philosophical argumentation for which he is well known. Widely regarded as the foremost theologian in the world today, Wolfhart Pannenberg unfolds his systematic theology, for which his many previous primarily methodological writings have laid the groundwork.
Volume 2 of Pannenberg's magnum opus moves beyond the highly touted discussion of systematic prolegomena and theology proper in Volume Throughout, Pannenberg brings to bear his impressive command of historical and exegetical knowledge and philosophical argumentation for which he is well known.

A very stimulating read, thought-provoking. I find modern theology like Pannenberg's is best read after reading the basics of traditional theology. Read classic Lutheran theology then read Pannenberg. You'll get a lot more out of him.
