Product Description

Gathering divergent voices into one conversation, Long surveys the current theological scene with respect to issues of language and truth. Engaging contemporary theologians and philosophers (Milbank, Kerr, Hauerwas), the legacy of Barth and Von Balthasar, and the analytic tradition from Wittgenstein to Davidson, he proposes a way beyond fragmentation that values truth and context in theological dialogue. 352 pages, softcover from Eerdmans.

Publisher's Description

 
D. Stephen Long here addresses a key question in current theological debate: the conditions of the possibility of "God-talk," along with attending questions about natural theology, fideism, and theological truth-claims. He engages not only the most significant contemporary theologians and philosophers on this score (Denys Turner, Bruce Marshall, John Milbank, Charles Taylor, Fergus Kerr) but also the legacy of twentieth-century theology (Barth, von Balthasar) and the analytic philosophical tradition from Wittgenstein to Davidson. Throughout, Long sustains a careful exegetical engagement with Aquinas, showing that what's at stake in contemporary theology is justhow we inherit St. Thomas. 

In joining all of these voices into one conversation, Long does a remarkable job of surveying the current theological scene with respect to issues of language and truth, arguing for the need to deal head-on with classical questions of metaphysics. Central to his project is averting the charge of "fideism" so often laid at the feet of "postliberal" approaches (like Long's). To that end Long argues for a (chastened) natural theology, while challenging any simple distinction between "natural" and "confessional" theology.

Publisher Description

Theology seems to be moving in two diverging directions, either historicism or a return to metaphysics via neoscholasticism. D. Stephen Long here proposes a way beyond this divergence, showing how we can instead appropriate both for a more truthful theological conversation.

Long leaves no one behind in his quest for this truth. He delves into the experience of those influenced by the ‘linguistic turn’ in theology — Hauerwas, the Yale School, some barthians — and into the recent efforts to bring a robust metaphysics back into partnership with theology — evidenced by John Milbank and radical orthodoxy. Long addresses questions of truth by examining their relationship to theology and their political significance. He further offers a compelling argument that the doctrine of the incarnation provides the means to address the relationship among truth, theological language, and politics.

Long’s attempt to extend the theological discussion beyond its current limitations is rooted in his hope that readers will become convinced that truth is as important as context for theology. Speaking of God is a significant study for all who wish to navigate today’s world of fragmented truth.
