Brümmer on Meaning and the Christian Faith: Collected Writings of Vincent Brümmer
Ashgate Publishing, Ltd., 2006 - 476 Seiten
This volume presents a wide-ranging selection from the writings of a leading contemporary philosophical theologian, Vincent Brummer. In his many books and articles Brummer has demonstrated how the tools of philosophical analysis are not only fruitful but also essential for dealing with the central issues of systematic theology. The title of this volume, Meaning and the Christian Faith, highlights two characteristic themes that recur throughout the many writings of Vincent Brummer. Much of his work has been devoted to exploring the meaning of the Christian faith, and especially of its central claim that God is a personal being whose fellowship believers may enjoy. On the other hand, Brummer has also shown that religious belief should not be understood as an explanatory theory but rather as a way in which believers understand the meaning of their lives and their experience of the world and direct their lives accordingly.
