about

This book seeks to exorcize the spectre of the Enlightenment by drawing on H. G. Gadamer's demonstration of `how little the traditions in which we stand are weakened' by the legacy of the Enlightenment. It then applies these insights to theology where the importance of tradition and the unitybetween theology and spirituality are rediscovered.

Editorial Reviews

'it remains an interesting and original attempt to grapple with the nature of theology ... This book needs to be read as an eloquent protest against the dryness of much modern theology and biblical interpretation'Peter Forster, St John's College, Durham, Anvil, Vol.8, No.1, 1991
