Chapter Summary

Perfect Will Theology has to be the fundamental starting-point for Christian Theology. In the seventeenth century, it indeed was, even if it was contested, but nowadays both inside and outside Christian theology an enormous diversity has grown. Besides the divergence within classic theism, whether Jewish, Christian, or Islamic, many modern theologians by now altogether reject theism or greatly modify it, and atheism rejects even their insights as too massive. Revealed theology concerns Trinitarian grace, and shows how Perfect Will Theology works out in the history of salvation. It would be fascinating to trace how this remarkable natural concept of God informs Christology, Pneumatology, and other theological topics as well.

Keywords: Christian theology; scholasticism
