In this book, Professor Ramsey attempts to show how the concern of contemporary philosophy with language has implications for theology--its claims and apologetic, its problems and controversies. He argues that, far from being necessarily irreligious, logical empiricism provides us with a tool that can be of the greatest service to theology, making possible, between philosophy and theology, not only a new cooperation but a new venture altogether. The whole subject of religious and theological language is one that is likely to receive increasing attention. Professor Ramsey's original and suggestive book cannot fail to have a notable influence on future discussions, and it is indispensable to anyone who wants to follow these discussions intelligently. -- John Macquarrie, Expository Times '...written with such gusto that the reader is tempted to note passages and inflict them on his friends. It is no small achievement to have written in such a lively manner without conveying the impression of frivolity.' -- David Cairns, Church of England Newspaper Ian T. Ramsey (1915 -1972) was former Bishop of Durham, County Durham, England, and also served as Nolloth Professor of the Philosophy of the Christian Religion at Oxford University. He was also the author of Religious Language, Models for Divine Activity, and Words About God.
