Inspiration (New Century Theology Series)

David Law

$49.99

Paperback
In this work David Law develops his theory of inspiration starting with texts as varied as Virgil's Aeneid and Shakespeare's plays before focusing on the Bible. Following Karl Jaspers, Law views all human knowledge as having limits beyond which there exists the transcendent. There are symbols, signs and characters - or ciphers - that inhabit religion and art and which point beyond these horizons. Perceiving these is at the heart of inspiration and the knowledge of God. For Law the key to the question of inspiration and the Bible lies with understanding the reader's encounter with these ciphers, the most supreme of which is Christ.

- Publisher Drawing from literary works, Jaspers' transcendental philosophy, and (of course) the Bible, Law (history of Christian thought, University of Manchester) presents a theory of inspiration. He describes the limits of knowledge, and the signs within religion and art which point beyond these horizons, to the transcendent and to the knowledge of God. Chapters center on the problem of biblical authority, logocentric theories of inspiration, non-verbal theories of inspiration, and the inspiration of the Bible. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

- Publisher David R. Law is Lecturer in the history of Christian thought at the University of Manchester.
