It goes without saying that, culturally, we live at a considerable distance from the Bible. Disagreements amongst philosophers of religion and theologians begin when we attempt to discuss in detail what that distance implies or entails. In this collection, D.Z.Phillips and Mario von der Ruhr draw together an impressive collection of distinguished theologians and philosophers of religion to explore the relation of key Biblical concepts to our contemporary world. Concepts discussed include authority, faith and history, the historical Jesus, the resurrection and miracles. Discussions following each section of the book bring alive the issues under debate, and allow the reader to understand the points of contention around each argument.
