In Face of Mystery by Gordon D. Kaufman

Book Description

In the symbolic world of Christianity, which millions have inhabited for centuries, is there room for modern and postmodern life - for today's real world of cultural relativism and religious pluralism, of scientific knowledge and historical understanding? This text draws these two worlds together in a reconception of Christian theology. Theology, Gordon Kaufman suggests, is an imaginative construction, the creation of a symbolic world for ordering life. As it has been constructed, so it can be reconstructed, and Kaufman does so in a way that clarifies both the historic roots and the present-day applications of Christian symbolism.
