Overview

How can human discourse refer meaningfully to a transcendent God? Paul Janz's book reconfigures this fundamental problem of Christian thinking as a twofold demand for integrity—integrity of reason and integrity of transcendence. It centers around an original yet faithful re-reading of Kant's empirical realism. Drawing on MacKinnon, Bonhoeffer, Barth and Marion, Janz challenges recent rushes to obscurantism and radicalization and culminates in a convergence between Christology and epistemology within empirical reality.
