Overview

This book represents conversations between philosophers and theologians on several issues of current theological interest. God, the church, theological authority, atonement, the Holy Spirit, religious ethics, the problem of evil, and other topics are debated by top-notch theologians and philosophers of various theological and philosophical persuasions. Since contemporary philosophers and theologians seldom communicate professionally, this book represents a fascinating and highly unusual cross-disciplinary conversation.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Nine professional British and American philosophers address questions that were generally left to theologians between the beginning of the modern period and the 1960s and 1970s. Among them are the centrality of theism for Christianity, atoning transactions, the third person of the trinity, religion in public discourse but not in public policy, theodicy and divine omnipotence, and the role of virtue in epistemic practices.
