The distinction between meaning and truth has become a critical issue for contemporary philosophy of religion. These essays by eminent scholars express a concern not only with the logic of religious belief and the effect of social context on religious meaning, but with the truth-claim concerning the reality of God.
“[Meaning, Truth, and God] explores from a variety of perspectives the questions of the relation of meaning and truth in the philosophy of religion. . . .Part 1 explores the logic of theological inquiry and the challenges to the veracity of religious discourse; Part 2 that of social process and religious belief; Part 3 addresses directly the question of the reality of God. This is a fine volume and makes an important contribution to current scholarship. It will be of value for all concerned with questions of meaning and truth in religion.” — The Journal of Religion
