Abstract

What may seem astonishing is the near dismissal of the beatific vision doctrine in the last 50+ years of biblical and theological scholarship in contrast to the emphasis given to it throughout church history. The state of theological scholarship is changing. In what follows, we set forth a short survey of a theology of the beatific vision, while also introducing the rest of the volume on the beatific vision and theosis, of which we take to have an intimate and overlapping relationship. The editorial article has four parts: it begins by introducing some of the relevant biblical material on the vision, proceeding to develop a theological interpretation of those passages, and then offer a short historical survey of the doctrine, focusing on the relevant medieval and Reformed developments. It finally introduces the articles of the issue.
