Read e-book online The Reality of God: and Other Essays PDF

By Schubert M. Ogden

From the Preface:
The name essay during this quantity was once initially ready because the 1965 Merrick Lectures at Ohio Wesleyan college. whilst i used to be invited to provide those lectures, I resolved virtually instantly that their topic will be what looked as if it would me then, whilst it nonetheless turns out to me, to be the imperative challenge of Christian theology. in fact, i'm much more conscious now, a few twelve years later, of the perils keen on trying to deal with so colossal an issue in so brief an area. yet i'm additionally confident that occasions have vindicated my judgements either to do the lectures and to pub¬lish them basically as they have been initially given. certainly, contemplating the reaction the e-book has bought considering the fact that its e-book in 1966 (and, in German translation, in 1970), i feel i'll declare that the identify essay has accomplished the modest aim I then set for it—namely, to provide realize of a potential replacement to the extra traditional methods to the matter of God and hence to make a distinction to the continuing dialogue. Even this day, I remorse to confess, this dialogue remains to be hamp-ered by means of the untenable assumptions that you can still verify Christian religion in God in basic terms within the phrases of classical theism and that you can be whole¬heartedly secular in basic terms through accepting the claims of contemporary secularism. yet I appear to see symptoms that those assumptions now not have whatever like as company a carry, and it really is fulfilling to imagine that my essay, during this new version, will pass on with its wonted paintings of disclosing them for what they are.
Beyond this, I stay confident that oversimplification isn't the in basic terms hazard to sturdy theology. Too frequently, the complexity of extra ex¬tensive remedies of a theological challenge serves purely to imprecise its primarily basic constitution as so much individuals in reality confront it. this can be maybe specifically prone to take place at the present time with regards to the matter of God, which advancements in smooth Western historical past have controlled to lessen for plenty of folks to the simplicity of some an important questions. there's, firstly, the query of the matter itself, of its right rationalization and formula, which, as generally, is the purpose the place many tried options already disqualify themselves from extra attention. Then, there's the query of a potential solu-tion, which, to that end, is actually questions: (1) as to the bases in our universal human adventure for conversing in regards to the truth of God in any respect; and (2) as to the conceptuality or method of primary con¬cepts during which that truth is so much thoroughly conceived and under¬stood. My readers could have no hassle spotting that it's only those questions that supply the formal constitution of the name essay. My desire, for this reason, is they also will simply notice within the essay solutions to questions they themselves are asking and that this directness of conversation will partly make up for an admitted insufficiency of improvement within the solutions themselves. while, i'd re¬mind them that the essay is strictly that—an essay, in an effort to much more likely serve their solid if its boundaries are usually not forgotten.
It was once in part from my very own feel of those obstacles that i didn't factor the name essay on my own, yet relatively within the context of a number of addi¬tional essays, a few of which had formerly seemed in different books and theological journals. Treating as they do of a few systematic difficulties from prolegomena to eschatology, those different essays fill in a few of the gaps left via the 1st and extra illustrate the way in which of doing theology which it exemplifies. The extra vital explanation for publish¬ing them the following, even though, was once that they, too, are all adaptations at the one subject of the truth of God. Their presence within the quantity hence serves to underscore when it comes to instance what i've got frequently acknowledged as a precept—that this subject matter is, within the final research, the only subject matter of all legitimate Christian theology, while it's the one crucial aspect to all actual Christian religion and witness.
