The Church and the Problem of Divine Hiddenness : Mirrors of God, Paperback / softback Book

The Church and the Problem of Divine Hiddenness : Mirrors of God Paperback / softback

Part of the Routledge Studies in Analytic and Systematic Theology series

Paperback / softback

Description

This book offers a theological, and more specifically ecclesiological, response to the philosophical problem of divine hiddenness.

It engages with philosopher J.L. Schellenberg's argument on hiddenness and sets out a theologically rich and fresh response, drawing on the ecclesiological thought of Gregory of Nyssa.

With careful attention to Gregory's work, the book shows how certain ecclesiological problems and themes are critical to the hiddenness argument.

It looks to the gathered church (the church as the body of Christ) and the scattered church (the church as the image of God) for relevance to the hiddenness problem.

The volume will be of interest to scholars of theology and philosophy, particularly analytic theologians and philosophers of religion.
