Format: Paperback
One of the most important and interesting accounts of the relationship between philosophy and theology that I have ever read. The book is a collection of edited papers that attempts to cover the way in which modern philosophy has refused to consider God except on its own secular terms. The long introduction by Phillip Blond is especially compelling. The introduction argues that the secular philosophical settlement is highly questionable.It outlines an alternative Christian ontology which Blond contends transcends the secular opposition of post-modernism and modernism, he argues that the world itself demands an entirely different account of its own nature. Avoiding a subjective religiousity Blond argues that Christianity is written into the character of the world and our perception of it!!

Format: Paperback
The conversation between philosophy and theology has at long last been rejoined after centuries of animosity and slander. This tentative rejoining has grown out of necessity; for, as Blond's excellent introduction makes plain, secularist philosophy has bequeathed to us a world of bloody discontinuities which threatens to choke us. This volume is an exciting first salvo across the bow of a bankrupt secularism whose contemporary devotees are stewing in their own juices, and whose stammerings are nothing more than desperate cries for help. The book also opens up exciting and lively new areas of philosophical reflection.

Format: Paperback
The conversation between philosophy and theology has at long last been rejoined after centuries of animosity and slander with theology being mostly on the receiving end. This tentative rejoining has grown out of necessity; for, as Blond's excellent introduction makes plain, secularist philosophy has bequeathed to us a world of bloody discontinuities which threatens to choke us. This volume is an exciting first salvo across the bow of a bankrupt secularism whose contemporary devotees are stewing in their own juices, and whose stammerings are nothing more than desperate cries for help. The book also opens up exciting and lively new areas of philosophical reflection, and it certainly is a welcome beginning at overcoming modern philosophical parochialism.
