The rise of modern science and the proclaimed 'death' of God in the nineteenth century led to a radical questioning of divine action and authorship - Bultmann's celebrated 'demythologizing'.
This contribution to the theology of divine action and authorship develops a fresh vision of Christian theism. It also revisits several long-standing controversies such as the relations of God's sovereignty to human freedom, time to eternity, and suffering to love. Only the communicating God can help" - the final line of Kevin Vanhoozer's Remythologizing Theology: Divine Action, Passion, and Authorship (Cambridge Studies in Christian Doctrine) (RM), playing on a statement from Bonhoeffer's prison letters, provides a succinct summary of his project in this creative and challenging theological reflection on the doctrine of God.

Kevin Vanhoozer’s Remythologizing Theology helps answer this question. Vanhoozer approaches his task as an exercise in remythologizing. It begins with God’s communicative action, God’s drama. We know God only because God speaks. Vanhoozer had already laid out this approach in his The Drama of Doctrine. Not to put too fine a point on it, most pastors I know are even more familiar with the limits of their book budgets than with either the Myers-Briggs or the doctrine of the enhypostaton. If clergy are going to read this book, it will need to be priced for that market.
