This book offers an introduction to the developments in philosophy of language, especially as these developments relate to religious language, particularly Christian discussion. This book not only discusses analytical philosophy, but also includes major historical debates about religious language along with several contemporary movements such as hermeneutical philosophy, philosophy of metaphor, narrative, structuralism, and poststructuralism. Dan Stiver provides an exposition of the different approaches with attention to central thinkers and works. These discussions intersect with religious studies, and this provides an expanding conversation about the subject as the book progresses. Dan R. Stiver, at the time of this publication, was Associate Professor of Christian Philosophy at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky.

"This is an excellent critical survey of the modern philosophy of language in general, and of religious language in particular, deftly set against the background of its traditional forerunners. It is readable, colourful, and richly informative, without being simplistic or sweeping in its descriptions and judgements." Steven Kings, Reviews in Religion and Theology
"Dan Stiver offers, for "tose coming to these topics for the first time", a useful map to an academic (sub)discipline called philosophy of religious language." Brian Davies, Anglican Theological Review
