It suggests that this doctrine is best approached by bearing in mind its three most salient characteristics, all of which are inter-dependent, and when kept in view make the essential tenets of Pannenbergs account transparent: God acts freely and immediately in and for creation- history is a function of the faithfulness of God to his creation- reconciliation is an expression of this faithfulness towards sinful creation - Gods holding fast to creation despite its self-destructive self-assertion. On the basis of a detailed examination of the central texts, it argues that Pannenbergs doctrine of reconciliation at once marks out Gods action in the world as the true Infinite and issues an invitation to consider how such a God extends himself in reconciling love to his creatures so that their finite creatureliness is at every turn affirmed and found to be in the end good.
