Theosis in the Thought of Herman Bavinck?:
Thomas F. Torrance’s Reconstruction of the Doctrine
and its Promise for Bavinck’s Theology.’

|| Herman Bavinck || Thomas F. Torrance || Theosis ||
|| Nature and Grace || Union with Christ ||

Central to understanding Herman Bavinck’s creation ontology is
the dictum “grace restores and perfects nature.” The sec-
ond half of this, namely that God’s work of grace aims to
lead creation towards its perfection, is often neglected
in articulations of Bavinck’s theology. To help under-
score the importance of this perfecting work, with its
soteriological and eschatological dimensions, this
essay proposes that there is a fundamental similarity
between this element of Bavinck’s thought and the
doctrine of theosis. To that end, this essay examines
Thomas F. Torrance’s doctrine of theosis, as a facet of his
broader trinitarian theology, to highlight that not only do
Bavinck and Torrance bear some surprising similarities, but also
Torrance provides language helpful to re-examine Bavinck’s eschatological
anthropology in light of the category of theosis.

Dan Martin,
‘Let the Simple Learn Wisdom:
Difficulties in Constructing a Biblical Theology
of the Proverbs’

||  Biblical Theology ||  Wisdom Literature ||  New Testament use of the Old Testament ||
 Old Testament Theology ||  Inter-Textuality ||

This paper argues that a robust Biblical theology of the book of Proverbs is lacking, even amidst the swelling Biblical theology literature of recent decades. A survey of contemporary trends in Biblical theology with respect to the Proverbs reveals two broad approaches, both of which struggle – in distinct ways – to deal precisely with the text of Proverbs as it is situated within the canon. This paper will offer a limited critique of these broader trends before focusing on the foundational issue of how to establish inductively-derived categories in Biblical theology. The paper concludes by outlining the steps towards the construction of a Biblical theology of the Proverbs which is both robustly exegetical and richly inter-textual.
