Abstract

This unique study by Jason Goroncy offers an accessible and constructive way of reading and critiquing the thought of one the most creative and robust theological minds that the English language has produced – P.T. Forsyth (1848-1921). It takes due account of, and elucidates, the theological, philosophical and historical locale of Forsyth’s thought, and explores whether the notion of ‘hallowing’ provides a profitable lens through which to read and evaluate his work. Goroncy suggests that the hallowing of God’s name is, for Forsyth, the way whereby God both justifies himself and claims creation for divine service. Reading Forsyth’s corpus as essentially an exposition of the first petition of the Lord’s Prayer, Goroncy invites us to better comprehend not only Forsyth’s soteriology but also, by extension, his broader theological vision and interests.
