Promise, besides present, is one of the fundamental metaphors within the Western Christian culture for describing God’s gracious activities. Being Promised argues that promise is itself one of those double reward -- one whilst the promise is given, one while it truly is fulfilled -- and analyzes the facility, time, and position of God’s promise.Gregory Walter bargains a theologically wealthy research of promise, anthropological and phenomenological mirrored image on present alternate, and a severe appreciation of different theological appropriations of present to help his argument. Walter clarifies the phenomenon of promise as present and indicates its theological, hermeneutical, and moral importance. No different publication theologically examines promise and reward trade like this one does.
