Realist Christian Theology in a Postmodern Age by Sue Patterson, Sue M. Patterson

This book breaks new ground by bringing together traditional Christian theological perspectives on truth and reality with a contemporary philosophical view of the place of language in reality. Yet it is not simply about theological language and truth as such. Instead Patterson asks: where does language fit in both divine and human reality? In her answer Patterson combines insights from several theological schools in an attempt to come up with a more comprehensive description. Finally, she explores the theological and ethical implications of the position she proposes.
