Sovereign God, Sovereign State, Sovereign Self 2005–2006

Jean Bethke Elshtain

Summary

Table of Contents

Abstract

Professor Elshtain presents a series of six Gifford Lectures examining the changing understanding of Godís sovereignty in relation to the development of the state and the concept of the self. From Lecture 1, which traces the movement from God as Logos to God as will, to Lecture 2, which suggests that Godís sovereignty is moved to the margins or Ďprivatizedí, Dr. Elshtain raises questions about changing political configurations and what that means for whether Godís will is in any way bound. Lectures 3 and 4 explore the sovereign state and whether and how Godís will influences or is affected by political will. Lectures 5 and 6 examine the emergence of the sovereign self and whether the self that rises in importance in relation to God can find a via media between pridefulness and inappropriate self-loss.
