Faith, Reason and the Existence of God by Denys Turner
Book DescriptionThe proposition that the existence of God is demonstrable by rational argument is doubted by nearly all philosophical opinion today and is thought by most Christian theologians to be incompatible with Christian faith. This book argues that, on the contrary, there are reasons of faith why in principle the existence of God should be thought rationally demonstrable and that it is worthwhile revisiting the theology of Thomas Aquinas to see why this is so. The book further suggests that philosophical objections to proofs of God's existence rely upon an attenuated and impoverished conception of reason which theologians of all monotheistic traditions might wish to reject. Denys Turner proposes that on a broader and deeper conception of it, human rationality is open to the 'sacramental shape' of creation as such and in its exercise of rational proof of God it in some way participates in that sacramentality of all things.

Books By Author Denys Turner
Cambridge Companion to the Summa Theologiae, Paperback (June 2016)
This Companion offers an accessible, comprehensive guide to the contents, context, and enduring influence of Thomas Aquinas' Summa Theologiae.
Thomas Aquinas, Paperback (July 2014)
Leaving so few traces of himself behind, Thomas Aquinas seems to defy the efforts of the biographer. What can be discovered about this man, his mind, and his soul? In this short, compelling portrait, the author clears away the haze of time and brings Thomas vividly to life for contemporary readers.
Julian of Norwich, Theologian, Paperback (August 2013)
For centuries readers have comfortably adopted Julian of Norwich as simply a mystic. In this book, the author argues that this fourteenth-century thinker's sophisticated approach to theological questions places her legitimately within the pantheon of other great medieval theologians, including Thomas Aquinas, Bernard of Clairvaux, and Bonaventure.
Silence and the Word, Paperback (June 2008)» View all books by Denys Turner
Studies the history of apophasis and examines its relationship with secular philosophy.
