What Do We Mean by 'God'?

Full Product Description

What Do We Mean by 'God'? - asks Keith Ward.

Language about God is something like the language of poetry. We know facts about the world without having poetry. The poetic use of language is not to increase our information about the world but to evoke in us a certain attitude or way of looking at things or feeling about things.

If this is also the purpose of religious language, what sort of view of the world is it trying to convey? Keith Ward - Professorial Research Fellow at Heythrop College, London and formerly Regius Professor of Divinity at the University of Oxford - thinks we might say it's about trying to convey the idea that the world is an expression of a reality beyond it.

Keith Ward unpacks the meaning of the word 'God' and explains why we need to get rid of the crude and unhelpful assumptions that still abound. This is a book for all who are curious about how God, and God's actions, can be understood today.

Intended for people looking for answers to life's biggest questions, this little book of guidance will appeal to anyone, whether believer or non-believer, who is looking for a quick and easy way into handling the question, 'What do we mean by 'God'?
