A Grammar of Consent

The Existence of God in Christian Tradition

Aidan Nichols, O.P.

A A Grammar of Consent broadens John Henry Newman’s argument for the existence of God to include more experiential materials reflecting two millennia of Christian philosophy. Nichols provides a beneficial corrective to a common contemporary narrowness in limiting experiential arguments to those dealing with some sort of distinctively religious experience. The book will be of interest to students and teachers in philosophy of religion, theology, history of ideas, and the wider philosophically and theologically interested public.

ISBN: 978-0-268-01026-3
248 pages
Publication Year: 1991

“Nichols allows his readers to exercise their own illative powers and see glimpses of the divine arising less by explication than by storytelling and evocation.” — Philosophy and Philosophy of Religion

“A wealth of solid food to nourish and keep one strong in the way of faith. Aidan Nichols scores high as an imaginative thinker and a philosophically astute theologian.” — Living Prayer

“This is a splendid book, a little masterpiece in the genre of wide-ranging surveys. Aidan Nichols . . . writes with the mastery, balance and gracefulness that comes only from a lifetime of disciplined study and teaching.” — The Christian Century
