By James Anderson
The case offered during this publication has major implications for the perform of systematic theology, biblical exegesis, and Christian apologetics.
Does conventional Christianity contain paradoxical doctrines
doctrines that current the looks (at least) of logical inconsistency?
what is the character of those paradoxes and why do they arise?
What is the connection among "paradox" and "mystery" in theological theorizing?
And what are the results for the rationality, or in a different way, of orthodox Christian beliefs?
In Paradox in Christian Theology, James Anderson argues that the doctrines of the Trinity and the incarnation, as derived from Scripture and formulated within the ecumenical creeds, are certainly paradoxical. yet this end, he contends, don't need to indicate that Christians who think those doctrines are irrational in doing so. In help of this declare, Anderson develops and defends a version of realizing paradoxical Christian doctrines based on which the presence of such doctrines is unsurprising and adherence to paradoxical doctrines can't be regarded as a major highbrow concern to trust in Christianity.
