    Ensouling the Beatific Vision. Motivating the Reformed Impulse.Joshua R. Farris & Ryan A. Brandt - 2017 - Perichoresis 15 (1):67-84.
    The beatific vision is a subject of considerable importance both in the Christian Scriptures and in the history of Christian dogmatics. In it, humans experience and see the perfect immaterial God, which represents the final end for the saints. However, this doctrine has received less attention in the contemporary theological literature, arguably, due in part to the growing trend toward materialism and the sole emphasis on bodily resurrection in Reformed eschatology. As a piece of retrieval by drawing from the Scriptures, (...)

    Reparative Substitution and the ‘Efficacy Objection’: Toward a Modified Satisfaction Theory of Atonement.Joshua R. Farris & S. Mark Hamilton - 2017 - Perichoresis 15 (3):97-110.
    The doctrine of the atonement is a subject of perpetual curiosity for a number of contemporary theologians. The penal substitution theory of atonement in particular has precipitated a great deal of recent interest, being held up by many Protestants as ‘the’ doctrine of atonement. In this essay, we make a defense against the objection to the Anselmian theory of atonement that is often leveled against it by exponents of the Penal Substitution theory, namely, that Christ’s work does not accomplish anything (...)

    Substance Dualism and Theological Anthropology.Joshua R. Farris - 2015 - Philosophy and Theology 27 (1):107-126.
    Currently, there remains an aversion for substance dualism in both philosophical and theological literature. However, there has been a renewed interest in substance dualism within philosophical literature. In the present article, I advance substance dualism as a viable position that persuasively accounts for the Scriptural and theological data within Christian thought. I make a specific argument in favor of a metaphysically simple substance. Along the way, I note the overlap between the philosophical and theological literature and suggest that a simple (...)

    Discovering God and Soul.Joshua R. Farris - 2014 - Philosophia Christi 16 (1):37-55.
    As a contribution to ramified natural theology, I advance some thoughts in favor of a distinctively Cartesian variation of natural theology that lends itself to the Christian understanding of God as a mind and as personal. I propose that defenders of Cartesian natural theology, as commonly construed in much of the contemporary substance dualist literature, construe the soul as a “sign” or “pointer” to God such that we, as human persons, seem to have access to God’s nature and existence via (...)

    Craig on Penal Substitution: A Critique.Joshua R. Farris & S. Mark Hamilton - 2021 - Neue Zeitschrift für Systematicsche Theologie Und Religionsphilosophie 63 (2):237-269.
    SummaryThe recent atonement literature reveals a growing trend accepting the thesis that the Reformer’s doctrine just is the biblical doctrine of penal substitution. This is the claim of William Lane Craig in his recent works on the atonement. In the present article, we challenge these set of claims in Craig’s recent works and advance an alternative theory of the atonement that has some significant footing in the Reformed theological tradition, most notably reflected in the theologian, William Ames. Finally, we lay (...)

    The Ashgate Research Companion to Theological Anthropology.Joshua R. Farris & Charles Taliaferro (eds.) - 2015 - Ashgate Publishing Company.
    In recent scholarship there is an emerging interest in the integration of philosophy and theology. Philosophers and theologians address the relationship between body and soul and its implications for theological anthropology. In so doing, philosopher-theologians interact with cognitive science, biological evolution, psychology, and sociology. Reflecting these exciting new developments, The Ashgate Research Companion to Theological Anthropology is a resource for philosophers and theologians, students and scholars, interested in the constructive, critical exploration of a theology of human persons. Throughout this collection (...)

    Souls, Emergent and Created.Joshua R. Farris - 2018 - Philosophia Christi 20 (1):83-92.
    With the challenges from science, there has been a shift away from traditional or classical versions of substance dualism toward emergentist accounts of the mind. Of particular importance for those still inclined to make some distinction between the mind and brain, emergent substance dualism provides an attractive option. However, it promises more than it can deliver. In the present article, I show that a version of emergent substance dualism, where the brain produces a soul, lacks the resources to account for (...)

    Creational Problems for Soul-Emergence From Matter: Philosophical and Theological Concerns.Joshua R. Farris - 2018 - Neue Zeitschrift für Systematicsche Theologie Und Religionsphilosophie 60 (3):406-427.
    Summary Discussions on soul origins are perceived as antiquated at best. However, there is a recent resurgence of interest in the nature and origins of the mind. This is due in part to the recent developments on the nature of “emergent” properties and/or substances in the contemporary literature on the philosophy of mind. As a contribution to this discussion, I examine the two most prominent theories of mental origins and find that each encounter some noteworthy problems. With these in mind, (...)

    A Theology of Seeing, Experiencing, and Vision. An Editorial Introduction.Joshua R. Farris & Ryan A. Brandt - 2019 - Perichoresis 17 (2):3-18.
    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 (...)
