Overview

This book has been written in the belief that both the demoralized "liberal" and the resurgent "conservative"elements of the present Christian community need to grasp again what G. K. Chesterton once called "the romance of orthodoxy." Many major beliefs of the church are actually a joining of atleast two coordinate truths that are delicately placed so as to form a larger whole, the higher truth. Very often,the components of a larger theological whole appear on the surface to be contradictory. Nevertheless, each contains a vital piece of the whole. Only together do they form the essential paradox that alone is able to express the real, the whole truth. We Christians find ourselves faced with a set of crucial paradoxes that are inevitable if our theology is to be adequate. We are challenged to avoid panic in the face of persistent paradox. The delicate ambiguities of paradox maybe the only path to true wisdom.
