Description - The Anthropological Character of Theology by David A. Pailin

This study looks at the various ways in which theological conclusions are affected by the rationality of those who produce them. The author's critique of the study of theology arises out of a conviction that theology has to establish its credibility as a mode of understanding if it is to be of value. In considering what follows once it is recognised that - since theologians are human - their conclusions are affected by the nature of human thought, Dr Pailin so offers a clarification of faith, belief and reason, and how they are related to each other. Topically, he asks how our current apprehension of the world influences our understanding of God as the basis of the meaning of reality, and shows that it is possible for theology to affirm God's reality while remaining self-critically aware of the human character of thought.
