Editorial Reviews


"The confidence and clarity Moore expresses throughout the work are refreshing." John D. Dadosky, Regis College, University of Toronto, Theology Today

"Moore's book is an impressive study of the problem of realism in modern theology and philosophy: whether God exists independently of human beings and their concepts.... Recommended." Choice

Book Description

The question of realism--that is, whether God exists independently of human beings--is central to much contemporary theology and church life. It is also an important topic in the philosophy of religion. This book discusses the relationship between realism and Christian faith in a thorough and systematic way and uses the resources of both philosophy and theology to argue for a conception of realism according to which God's independent reality is shown principally in Christ and, on this basis, through Christian practices and the lives of Christians.

Format: Paperback
Moore makes a case for what he calls "dialectical fideism" as he develops a Christocentric theological realism. He argues against both theological non-realism (Cupitt et al.) and theistic realists (Soskice, et al.). He sees the former as too based on abstractions apart from the Christian tradition, and the latter arguing for a non-specific god with little connection to the Triune God of scripture. Moore's case is well argued and readable, well worth adding to your collection in theological epistemology.
