Here, John Webster presents a trinitarian theology of holiness, which is aimed at a wide range of audiences, including ordinands, students of theology and interested laypeople. According to this account, God's holiness is known not in his simple transcendence but in his gracious and free relationship to his creatures. That holiness finds an echo in the holiness of the Christian community, especially in worhip and witness, and in the life of the individual disciple. Integrating biblical, dogmatic and practical theology, the book - which is based on the Day-Higginbotham lectures delivered in the University of Toronto in 2002 - offers a succint account of a central theme in Christian teaching and practice.

Revd Prof. John Webster

John Webster was former Professor of Divinity at University of St Andrews and former Lady Margaret Professor of Divinity in the University of Oxford and Canon of Christ Church. He authored several books, including "Eberhard Jungel" and "Barth's Ethics and Reconciliation", and he edited, in addition, the "Cambridge Companion to Karl Barth". He was the co-editor, with Colin Gunton, of the "International Journal of Systematic Theology", published by Blackwell.

"Webster's 'theological essay on holiness" (p.1) is a concentrated recollection of the reformers' fundamental theological insights of in the contemporary horizon of a challenged church. His plea for holiness is well based in that fundament of the church which cannot be disturbed by its current failures or decreasing acceptance. And this makes the essay a strong and strenghtening theological plea." Michael Weinrich, Freie Universität Berlin, Scottish Journal of Theology,Volume 58/3, 2005.
