Realism and Christian Faith: God, Grammar, and Meaningby Andrew Moore
Pub. Date: 04/01/2003
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
The question of realism (that is, whether God exists independently of human beings) is central to contemporary theology and church life. It is also an important topic in the philosophy of religion. This book discusses the relationship between realism and Christian faith. It uses the resources of philosophy and theology to argue for a conception of realism in which God's independent reality is shown through Christian life practices.
