Christ's Fulfillment of Torah and Temple Summary

Christ's Fulfillment of Torah and Temple: Salvation according to Thomas Aquinas by Matthew Levering

Christ's Fulfillment of Torah and Temple is a concise introduction to the Christian theology of salvation in light of the contributions of Thomas Aquinas. In this cogent study, Matthew Levering identifies six important aspects of soteriology, each of which corresponds to an individual chapter in the book. Levering focuses on human history understood in light of the divine law and covenants, Jesus the Incarnate Son of God and Messiah of Israel, Jesus' cross, transformation in the image of God, the Mystical Body of Christ into which all human beings are called, and eternal life. Taking the doctrines of faith as his starting point, Levering's objective is to answer the questions of both Christians and non-Christians who desire to learn how and for what end Jesus "saves" humankind. Levering's work also speaks directly to contemporary systematic theologians. In contrast to widespread assumptions that Aquinas's theology of salvation is overly abstract or juridical, Levering demonstrates that Aquinas's theology of salvation flows from his reading of Scripture and deserves a central place in contemporary discussions.

Christ's Fulfillment of Torah and Temple Reviews

"For experts on Thomas, for amateurs, and for everyone who wants to understand the connections between Old and New Testaments, Matthew Levering proves himself an able and scintillating guide. Those engaged in Jewish-Christian dialogue will find especially instructive Thomas' understanding of the Church as the "new Israel." -- Richard John Neuhaus, editor in chief, First Things
