Addressing the Noumenal: Biblical Theology with Michael S. Horton

This post is to give a quick layout of Horton's methodology as displayed in his introduction, "Before the Curtain Rises."

We must view reality through a lens, argues Michael Horton, author of Covenant & Eschatology (Westminster John Knox, 2004). This is true of all humanity, and we already do it, whether we realize it or not. Where it gets sticky is which lens we will employ. Horton is quite clear: his methodology consists of viewing reality and the biblical text through an eschatological lens, subsumed in redemptive history. His mode is analogical, his model is dramatic, and his context is the covenant.

That was a VERY interesting one! Seriously interesting.

Thanks for sharing that. It was fun reading it. :-)

Transplanted from the artic blight of Minnesota to the sunny paradise of SoCal, I am attending school and learning to say "dude." I like to think of myself as equal parts surf rash, Batman, heavy metal, Levinas, poetic license, and reformational. Other than creating blund blogs, I enjoy reading, sporting, and socializing with serious and funny people.

How does Rowling and the "Harry Potter" series stack up against Tolkien and "The Lord of the Rings" trilogy?
Rowling is the new dreamweaver. She is reigniting literature and fantasy as we know it.
Tolkien is the undisputed favorite. We have not yet seen a match for his philogistic skill.
This is apples and oranges. You might as well compare ping pong with Halo. Two different animals.
Rowling wins, but only by one quidditch goal.
Tolkien still stands, but only barely. free polls
