Paradox in Christian Theology


Paternoster 2007

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


How can Jesus be fully human and fully divine? How can God be three-in-one? James Anderson develops and defends a model of understanding paradoxical Christian doctrines according to which the presence of such doctrines is unsurprising and adherence to paradoxical doctrines can be entirely reasonable. As such, the phenomenon of theological paradox cannot be considered as a serious intellectual obstacle to belief in Christianity. The case presented in this book has significant implications for the practice of systematic theology, biblical exegesis, Christian apologetics and philosophy.

Praise for the Print Edition

An accomplished engagement of important recent work in analytic philosophy of religion.

—David Fergusson, Professor of Divinity, New College, University of Edinburgh
