The Character Logic of Christian Belief.

42,00 €

The notion of a “person” is in deep philosophical trouble. And this has posed a deepening crisis for believers: Christian beliefs are, after all, irreducibly about persons. In response to this situation, Prust proposes a new way to reason about persons, one based on identifying persons as characters of action. Employing a phenomenology of action he calls “character logic,” he develops a powerful new tool for thinking through some of the intractable dilemmas that have long befuddled belief: Can we avoid being arbitrary and parochial in claiming that God is the only source of moral value? Can we reconcile natural evil in the world with God's absolute power? Can we continue to honor the historicity of faith-based claims in the face of critical history? Can our personal life be eternal when neither timeless nor everlasting life is conceivable? Can we accept our personal mortality and still affirm our destiny as eternal? Wholeness: The Character Logic of Christian Belief argues that character logic shows us a reasonable way to think about persons, one that puts theology on a new footing and gives affirmative answers to all these questions!
