Product Description

For centuries, theologians have appropriated secular paradigms to service sacred description. Drawing on a diversity of voices---from Calvin and Coleridge to Wittgenstein and Kuhn---Green locates theology on a larger intellectual plane, positioning imagination at the point of contact between divine revelation and more systematic analyses of human experience. 180 pages, softcover from Eerdmans.

Publisher's Description

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.
