Product Description

Contemporary philosophy has made great challenges to the very possibility of meaning in language. Yet, for Christians language is an integral, if not often overlooked, fundamental aspect of our Theology. Christianity is based on the very possibility of meaningful language not only in its communal assumptions, but in its beliefs about God and the Trinity. In the Beginning was the Word: Language A God-Centered Approach Vern Sheridan Poythress argues just this; that language is central to every part of existential reality, and because it is, there is ample reason to suggest that the Bible is in fact true and the Christian faith genuine.

Further, he believes that human language reflects the nature of the triune God and thus serves as a ground upon which we can think about the godhead. Intriguing, fascinating, and timely this book is sure to help Christians a theology of language that faithfully reflects God's work in Christ and of God himself.
