Realism and Christian Faith: God, Grammar, and Meaning

Capa
Cambridge University Press, 27 de mar. de 2003 - 269 páginas
"This book discusses the relationship between realism and Christian faith in a through and systematic way, and uses the resources of both philosophy and theology to argue for a Christocentric narrative realism. Many previous defences of realism have attempted to model Christian belief on scientific theory, but Moore argues that this comparison is misleading and inadequate on both theological and philosophical grounds. In dialogue with speech act theory and critiques of realism by both non-realists and Wittgensteinians, a new account of the meaningfulness of Christian language is proposed. Moore uses this to develop a regulative conception of realism according to which God's independent reality is shown principally in Christ and then through Christian practices and the lives of Christians."--BOOK JACKET.
