SYMBOLS OF JESUS is a systematic theology focusing on what makes Jesus important in christianity. It studies six families of symbols about Jesus and shows how they are true for some people, not true for others, and not meaningful for a third group. The major work re-shapes the way we think about Jesus, and will be of value to students, academics, clergy with theological training and others grappling with the meaning and importance of religious symbols in our age.
Focusing on what makes Jesus important in Christianity, Robert Cummings Neville, a leading philosophical theologian, presents and illustrates a theory of religious symbols wherein God is directly engaged in symbolically shaped thinking and practice. Moreover, Christian symbolism is shown to be entirely compatible with a late-modern scientific world view. This major work may affect belief in Jesus, and will be of value to students, academics, clergy with theological training, and others grappling with the meaning and importance of religious symbols in our age.
