This book is based on the Gifford lectures given in Aberdeen. It is actually in two parts: the first part is on a Trinitarian natural theology and the second part is on the Fine-Tuning argument (Observations and Interpretations).Cited by: 9.   This book draws together a distinguished group of philosophers and theologians to present new thinking on realism and religion. The religious realism/antirealism debate concerns the questions of God’s independence from human beings, the nature of religious truth and our access to religious by: 8.   Christian Realism to Guide American Foreign Policy As Thompson wrote in arguably one of his best books, Political Realism and the Crisis of World Politics, “In political theory in general, is the endless quest for what is right amidst the complexity of competing and sometimes conflicting, sometimes compatible, moral ends.” Prudence.   Wright aims to address the lack of any substantial and sustained engagement between critical realism and theological critical realism with particular regard to: (a) the distinctive ontological claims of Christianity; (b) their epistemic warrant and intellectual legitimacy; and (c) scrutiny of the primary source of the ontological claims of Christianity, namely the historical figure of Jesus of Nazareth.

‘Christian Realism’ is the name that has been given to that way of thinking. It is a term closely associated with Reinhold Niebuhr, when it is not exclusively identified with his thought. It is, however, important to remember that the theological movement originated before Niebuhr took it up as his own. Modern literary realism has posed legitimate problems for Christians for at least a century.

This book draws together a distinguished group of philosophers and theologians to present new thinking on realism and religion. The religious realism/antirealism debate concerns the questions of God's independence from human beings, the nature of religious truth and our access to religious truths. Although both philosophers and theologians have written on the topic, there has been little. Robert Cathey tours the 'house of realism' as constructed by postliberal Christians (David Burrell, William Placher, Bruce Marshall), in conversation with living communities of faith and critical work in philosophy and theology, and develops a distinctive argument about the relation of realism and non-realism in constructing the doctrine of God.

This book is an attempt to think through some of the most important problems of Christian life and thought in the light of insights which have come from recent developments in theology and in the light of the events that haunt our minds. The first chapter is a diagnosis of the existing situation and the chapters that follow are essays in theology.
