Product Description

In this re-issue of Hick's postmodern refutation of Christian tenets, the author continues his series of treatises illustrating his theory of normative pluralism. Hick posits (among other things) that so-called 'near-death experiences' account for much of the miraculous and supernatural events surrounding the death, resurrection and subsequent appearances of Christ, thereby discarding long-held elements of Christian faith. By challenging the Bible's inerrancy he in essence challenges the faith's relevancy, but he also outlines a system of accepting the broad sweep of the Bible without concentrating on those components that are incongruous with an all-embracing belief system.

Publisher's Description

In this groundbreaking work, John Hick refutes the traditional Christian understanding of Jesus of Nazareth. According to Hick, Jesus did not teach what was to become the orthodox understanding of him: that he was God incarnate who became human to die for the sins of the world. Further, the traditional dogma of Jesus' two natures--human and divine--cannot be explained satisfactorily, and worse, it has been used to justify great human evils. Thus, the divine incarnation, he explains, is best understood metaphorically. Nevertheless, he concludes that Christians can still understand Jesus as Lord and the one who has made God real to us. This second edition includes new chapters on the Christologies of Anglican theologian John Macquarrie and Catholic theologian Roger Haight, SJ.

Author Bio

John Hick is Fellow of the Institute for Advanced Research in Arts and Social Sciences at the University of Birmingham in England. He is the author of a number of books, including A Christian Theology of Religions, Death and Eternal Life, and God Has Many Names , all of which are published by WJK.
