Product Description

Written as part of the "conversation" of theology, McFague describes this "metaphorical perspective" as a thought experiment. What would the relations between religious and theological language look like if seen in the light of the way metaphors become models, in light of the relativity and openness of metaphorical thinking, and in light of the intrinsic iconoclastic and transformative character of metaphorical thought? Would it avoid the idolatry and literalism that has plagued much religious language and would it prove a way to make religious language more relevant to people exluded from traditional religious language? McFague explores these questions thoroughly, seeking introduce greater pluralism and humility into theological discourse. Sallie McFague is Carpenter Professor of Theology at Vanderbuilt Divinity School. (Paperback, 194pp)
