about

This book is a wide-ranging survey of the basic character of theological understanding. It explores various ways in which the nature of human thought and the character of human experience affect what theologians conclude about God. Dr. Pailin addresses a number of ideas developed by major thinkers and applies them to theology in a manner not paralleled elsewhere.
