Theology time and again proves itself to be a multi-faceted study, and in an effort to understand and re-envision Theology through the lens of contemporaneity this series focuses on Christianity in a university setting. Also important in religious studies is the complimentary role philosophy plays. With these two objectives in mind, Religion and the University Series presents for the first time in paperback, Theology and Philosophy.
Religion and the University Series
This series is concerned with the revitalisation of Christian culture through the reform of the university, and more widely with the revitalisation of religious culture through university education. It further aims to demonstrate a creative and imaginative role for the Christian theological perspective within the university setting.
Theology and Philosophy
“What is the place of Christian theology in the modern university and the intellectual culture of our times? Through the examination of theological and philosophical traditions, this collection of essays by leading scholars demonstrates how human intellectual enquiry has been an attempt to respond to questions which, at their most profound and significant, are theological. Answering those questions has always required the deployment of philosophy as part of a dialectical conversation with the tradition of faith. In our current intellectual and cultural condition of fragmentation, these penetrating and informative essays by leading scholars help to articulate how we might once again share an intellectual vision which is theologically and philosophically coherent.” -Simon Oliver, Associate Professor of Philosophical Theology, University of Nottingham, UK
The purpose of this volume is to offer an authoritative overview of the positive relationship between faith and reason, the latter understood as different mode of philosophy. It will also show that despite important variations and differences, the manner in which Christian faith is able to interact with other intellectual disciplines is grounded in theology and is required by theology. Finally it will ground the overall project of "Religion and the University" firmly in different ecclesial communities within the Christian family and differing theological-philosophical orientations that might be trans-denominational.
