Summary "The Swiss Reformed Theologian Emil Brunner was one of the key figures in the early 20th-century Dialectical Theology movement. In this volume David Andrew Gilland offers an account of Brunner's earlier theology in relation to one of the central themes of the Protestant Reformation: Law and Gospel. He examines Brunner's early relationship with fellow Swiss Reformed theologian Karl Barth, and provides a detailed reading of a variety of Brunner's essays from the early to mid-1920s, centering on Brunner's efforts to use the Law-Gospel relationship to establish a basis for Christian theology. After analysing the influence this has on Brunner's theological method, Gilland examines Brunner's earliest text on Christology, The Mediator (1927) and provides a careful reading of Brunner's controversial polemic against Karl Barth, Nature and Grace (1934)"--Page 4 of cover
