Description

How can we speak about God, who is wholly "other"? This complex question lies at the heart of a new and insightful analysis of the meaning of analogy, symbol, myth and verifiability as Stephen Loxton sets the empiricists against the insights of modern theologians in the quest for a comprehensible language for God.
