By James Anderson
Does conventional Christianity contain paradoxical doctrines doctrines that current the looks (at least) of logical inconsistency? what's the nature of those paradoxes and why do they come up? what's the dating among "paradox" and "mystery" in theological theorizing? And what are the results for the rationality, or differently, of orthodox Christian ideals? In Paradox in Christian Theology, James Anderson argues that the doctrines of the Trinity and the incarnation, as derived from Scripture and formulated within the ecumenical creeds, are certainly paradoxical. yet this end, he contends, needn't suggest that Christians who think those doctrines are irrational in doing so. In aid of this declare, Anderson develops and defends a version of realizing paradoxical Christian doctrines in keeping with which the presence of such doctrines is unsurprising and adherence to paradoxical doctrines can't be regarded as a significant highbrow main issue to trust in Christianity.
