Idealism and Christian Theology : Idealism and Christianity Volume 1 Hardback
Edited by Joshua R. Farris, S. Mark Hamilton, James S. Spiegel
In the recent history of philosophy few works have appeared which favorably portray Idealism as a plausible philosophical view of the world.
Considerably less has been written about Idealism as a viable framework for doing theology.
While the most recent and significant works on Idealism, composed by the late John Foster (Case for Idealism and A World for Us: The Case for Phenomenological Idealism), have put this theory back on the philosophical map, no such attempt has been made to re-introduce Idealism to contemporary Christian theology.
Idealism and Christian Theology is such a work, retrieving ideas and arguments from its most significant modern exponents (especially George Berkeley and Jonathan Edwards) in order to assess its value for present and future theological construction.
As a piece of constructive philosophical-theology itself, this volume considers the explanatory power an Idealist ontology has for contemporary Christian theology.
