Overview

This is a new kind of theological book—one that respects and affirms how important the secular study of religion is to Christian theology.

In Imagining God Garrett Green presents an original interpretation of the nature of imagination that resolves the longstanding dichotomy between religious and scientific truth by conceiving imagination as the "point of contact" between divine revelation and human experience.

Through a critical examination of the historical relationship between theology and religious imagination, Green outlines a constructive theology that views imagination as a means of making contemporary sense of God and Scripture without violating traditional Christian doctrine.

Editorial Reviews
