Much blood has been spilled and is still being spilled over the question, Is there such a thing as a true religion? To answer No, is to give up on religion. To answer Yes seems dangerous and naive. Yet there is a way of understanding religion that avoids the danger and is both emotionally and intellectually satisfying.

Already hailed as a landmark in contemporary Catholic theology, Jesus Symbol of God surveys scriptural data, the key moments in the development of doctrine, and the distinctive horizons of our contemporary world to develop a comprehensive and systematic christology for our time. The task of christology is to explain what it means to say that Jesus is the bearer and revealer of God in the Christian community, the decisive mediation of God's salvation -- or, in other words, the symbol of God.
The classical Hellenic concept of God as self-consistent (incapable of internal mutability and passionality) is rejected by process theologians on the basis of the immediacy of lived experience and the biblical witness. All actual reality is relational. Process theologians attempt to arrive at modern Christological statements which would do justice to the central intention of traditional creedal affirmations. If Christ can be considered -the image of creative transformation- in the context of contemporary theological pluralism, even Paul Tillich's category of existentialist ontology is adaptable. The cosmological -image- of Christ is compatible with the ontological -symbol- of New Being in Jesus as the Christ. The consequences for exploratory Christological affirmations to account for God's unique presence in Jesus the Christ are appealing to modernity."

One of the most notable features of the current philosophical climate is the resurgence of interest, at school and university, in the Philosophy of Religion. With his extensive teaching experience at both these levels, Dr Michael Palmer has created another invaluable aid for all students and instructors working in this area. This two-volume anthology is the most comprehensive compilation of major writings now available to the public, while its user-friendly structure makes it particularly important for students at differing levels of attainment. The book includes comprehensive introductions to each topic, detailed analysis of each essay, biographical information about individual philosophers, wide-ranging bibliographies and examination questions. The result is the most important aid to study in this area now on the market, which will be an invaluable resource for students, teachers and the general reader alike.
This comprehensive intro text covers central topics of elementary and symbolic logic. It contains many problems and exercises and provides a solid foundation for continued study of advanced topics in logic.
Although this work is written from a Christian viewpoint, it also presents the symbolic visions of the non-believer. The symbolic examination of God helps us to uncover what it means to be human, and where we are heading as a species. Symbols aid in conveying the abstract ideas that human languages are too limited to express. In the broadest sense, God symbolizes all the mysteries of existence. Any thinking person must ask the question, 'what is the ultimate significance of this frail and vulnerable flesh that clothes the human ego?' God symbolizes these important mysteries, and beckons us to approach him for answers.
Collects over 3500 passages dealing with mankind's search for God, taken from the scriptures of the world's religions and commentaries by men and women of rare spiritual perception
This is the clearest, most broadly based, accessible presentation of Catholic Christianity available today. Christ Among Us presents Catholicism as it has emerged from VATICAN II, addressing questions of doctrine, theology, tradition, and practice, exploring important issues of faith and morality.
