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.
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.
Longs 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 todays world of fragmented truth.
