A Space for Unknowing

The Place of Agnosis in Faith
  • By Stephen R. White
Product Description
Second in a trilogy dealing with theology, unknowing and the church. What is theology for, and what is its relationship to prayer, worship and daily living? Too often theology appears to be divorced from the everyday concerns of the church, but in this book White argues that theology is not only relevant but essential to the well-being of the church. However, its function is not (as is sometimes supposed) to shackle us, but to create a space for belief' within which a Christian life can be lived. "In this companion volume to his 2006 A Space for Belief: The Place of Theology in Faith, White (dean of Killaloe in Co. Clare, Church of Ireland) presents some fresh ideas concerning certainty within Christian faith. His primary thrust is the concept of agnosis, or unknowing, in theology. Writing in an eminently readable style, White seeks to highlight the development of faith based on relationships rather than on intellectual knowledge as well as to stimulate discussion by tracing lines of theological uncertainty through Christian history. He also considers current uses for unknowing, notably, as an alternative to fundamentalism... This book is universally recommended, particularly to libraries having his earlier one. It will definitely engender discussion and might even spark some controversy."--Library Journal
