  2. Returning the Gift of Life.Robert Halliday, Rod Nicholls, Mark Wynn, Nick Trakakis, Yujin Nagasawa, Maarten Wisse, Peter Kügler & Igor Douven - 2004 - Ars Disputandi 4.
    The gift of life argument, the claim that suicide is immoral because our lives are not ours to dispose of as we are their guardians or stewards, is a persistent theme in debates about the morality of suicide, assisted-suicide, and euthanasia. I argue that this argument suffers from a fatal internal incoherence. The gift can either be interpreted literally or analogically. If it is interpreted literally there are serious problems in understanding who receives the gift. If it is understood analogically (...)

    The Meaning of the Authority of the Bible.Maarten Wisse - 2000 - Religious Studies 36 (4):473-487.
    What does it mean to say that the Bible has authority? The author introduces and develops J. M. Bochenski's philosophical theory about the nature of authority. On this basis, he distinguishes between different kinds of authority, which he applies to the authority of the Bible. Subsequently, he shows that the theory of Bochenski should be improved by reworking it from the perspective of speech-act theory. This leads to the presentation of an overall theory of authority that matches authority in general (...)

    Retrieving the Law and Gospel Distinction for the Task of Dogmatics.Maarten Wisse - 2019 - Neue Zeitschrift für Systematicsche Theologie Und Religionsphilosophie 61 (3):297-315.
    Summary In this paper, I argue that contemporary dogmatics shares a common interest in the representation of God and God’s acts in human language, be this in a more narrowly propositional way or a more broadly defined doxological or dramaturgical way. I argue for an alternative way of looking at the task of dogmatics in terms of the classical distinction between Law and Gospel. I argue that this view of the task of dogmatics makes us understand premodern dogmatics better than (...)

    Graham Ward's Poststructuralist Christian Nominalism.Maarten Wisse - 2010 - Sophia 49 (3):359-373.
    In his Cities of God, Graham Ward advocates for what he calls an ‘analogical worldview’. On the one hand, he suggests that this analogical worldview has its roots in pre-modern theology and philosophy, especially in Augustine and Aquinas. On the other hand, Graham Ward draws heavily on contemporary critical theory to express this view. The thesis defended in this paper is that by reading the concept of analogy from Augustine and Aquinas in terms of contemporary critical theory, especially that of (...)

    Narrative Theology and the Use of the Bible in Systematic Theology.Maarten Wisse - 2005 - Ars Disputandi: The Online Journal for Philosophy of Religion 5.
    An important development in Christian theology during the second half of the twentieth century was what we might call the ‘narrative turn’—i.e. the idea that Christian theology’s use of the Bible should focus on a narrative representation of the faith rather than the development of a set of propositions deduced from the data of revelation. This paper inquires, first, whether and to what extent a narrative approach to systematic theology is incompatible with a ‘referential account’. It is argued that a (...)

    “Pro Salute Nostra Reparanda”: Radical Orthodoxy's Christology of Manifestation Versus Augustine's Moral Christology.Maarten Wisse - 2008 - Neue Zeitschrift für Systematicsche Theologie Und Religionsphilosophie 49 (3):349-376.
    In recent years, a new type of Neo-Augustinian theology has received extensive attention: Radical Orthodoxy. Leading figures behind Radical Orthodoxy such as John Milbank, Catherine Pickstock, and Graham Ward assert that they reclaim Augustine's theology over and against almost every major types of modern theology. Their leading claim is that an Augustinian participationist theological ontology overcomes Enlightment sourced secularism. In this essay, the Augustinian character of Radical Orthodox theology is put to the test in terms of a comparison and confrontation (...)

    Tolerant Because Christianity Itself is a Hybrid Tradition: A Response to Nicholas Wolterstorff’s ‘Toleration, Justice and Dignity’.Maarten Wisse - 2015 - International Journal of Philosophy and Theology 76 (5):392-396.
    In Nicholas Wolterstorff’s ‘Toleration, Justice and Dignity’, he argues for tolerance between religious traditions on the basis of human dignity. In this response to his paper, I argue that a general philosophical argument from human dignity will at best lead to indifference or mere praise, but not true tolerance. In the second part of the paper, I offer a sketch of a distinctly Christian way of arguing for tolerance towards adherents of other religions, namely on the basis of the insight (...)
