Editorial Reviews


"It is certainly an impressive achievement. The author sticks to his purpose and each article is examined from his chosen standpoint. The book could confidently be used as a starting point for conversation with undergraduates and ministerial training courses."

(Tim Gorringe)

This is the book I wish I had written in response to my crisis of faith that began in 1985. It addresses almost all of the questions that have been chasing me since then.

Several weeks have passed since I finished a close reading of _The Analogy of Love_ by Gary Chartier. When I came across it accidentally, I was hopeful that Chartier would attempt to answer specific religious and philosophical questions that I’ve been struggling with for years. I had not been able to find satisfying treatments of, what seemed to me to be, fundamental problems with normative Christian thought. Is it possible to have an experience of God that is more than purely subjective? What evidence is there that “God is love”? If Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection was a pivotal moment in history, why has nothing in our reality changed? and so on.

Chartier’s treatment of these type of questions, and his conclusions, would spark a lot of debate at the church picnic. His take on atonement, sin, creaturely freedom, universal salvation, and other topics are not immediately recognizable as consistent with normative Christian doctrine, but I believe he is on to something. His use of logic, formal argument, and giving a fair hearing to opposing views gives his conclusions an authority and credibility that I have found lacking in most of what I have read of Christian theology. He acknowledges that much of that theology is aimed toward explaining the internal logic of it. But what sincerely doubting people often need, and can’t readily find, is a fair treatment of the external logic of Christianity, which _Analogy_ does.
