'What is Truth?': Towards a Theological Poetics

Capa
Psychology Press, 2001 - 195 páginas
"'What is Truth?' forges an essentially new form of 'mythic theology', opening up a fresh approach to the deepest nature of poetic truth. In a culture where the status of institutional religion is a decline, there is a pressing need for new theological strategies. Not least, theology needs to seal a new pact of alliance with the very boldest forms of prophetic poetry. In arguing for a fresh 'theological poetics', 'What is Truth?' represents a move towards meeting this need."--Jacket.
