How can believers speak of the certainty of faith within a society that celebrates cultural and religious pluralism? Through a series of profound discussions of theology in relation to epistemology, methodology, and science, this collection of essays boldly expresses the many challenges facing Christian theology in confronting contemporary postmodern thought. 285 pages, softcover from Eerdmans.
This collection of essays boldly addresses many of the challenges faced by Christian theology in the context of contemporary postmodern thought. Handling abstract topics in a remarkably clear and concise way, J. Wentzel van Huyssteen presses the case for a "postfoundationalist theology" as a viable third option beyond the extremes of foundationalism and nonfoundationalism. Van Huyssteen discusses themes related to rationality, epistemology, and philosophy of science. In the process he critically engages the work of such thinkers as Wolfhart Pannenberg, Nancey Murphy, Jerome Stone, and Gerd Theissen. The result is a convincing argument that only a truly accessible and philosophically credible notion of interdisciplinarity will be able to pave the way for a plausible public theology that can play an important intellectual role in our fragmented culture today.
