God Against Religion: Rethinking Christian Theology Through Worship

封面
Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing, 2008年1月29日 - 242 頁

This volume outlines a Christian theology that takes worship as its basic framework, as the occasion of not only an approach toward God in piety but also separation from God in sin. Drawing on Luther, Calvin, and especially Karl Barth, Matthew Myer Boulton builds a Reformed liturgical theology, maintaining that the God of Jesus Christ is a “God against religion,” one who saves human beings from religion by entering it, transforming it, and ultimately ending it.

第 89 頁 - Wherewith shall I come before the LORD, and bow myself before the high God ? shall I come before him with burnt offerings, with calves of a year old ?

第 53 頁 - I hate, I despise your feasts, and I take no delight in your solemn assemblies.

第 89 頁 - He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the LORD require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?
