Chapter Summary

This chapter focuses on some of the themes which have the professional interest of Willem van Asselt and on which he has done such energetic and important work during the past decades, we have to pause for a moment to contemplate the so-called other side of the coin. Firstly, it summarizes the acute way in which Yale theologian William C. Placher has phrased the charge in question a couple of years ago in his intriguing analysis of the vicissitudes of the doctrine of God in the seventeenth century. Secondly, to get a first indication of its cogency the chapter looks at the primary sources to which Placher appeals. Thirdly, drawing upon Rahner and Pannenberg as well as upon Richard Mullers impressive defence of the theology of the seventeenth-century Protestant scholastics, the chapter tries to come to a more balanced judgment. Finally, the chapter draws some conclusions.

Keywords: reformed scholasticism; trinitarian renaissance; Willem van Asselt
