This collection of previously unpublished essays and lectures provides a fascinating insight into over fifty years of incisive theological reflection by John Macquarrire. Having written and taught extensively in the fields of theology and philosophy, Macquarrie was struck by the fact that certain difficult theological questions have continued to recur in the history of the subject. These are the so-called 'stubborn questions' referred to in the title. The context in which Macquarrie situates his thinking is that of a largely secularized world, in which religious knowledge has been discredited and marginalized. The book falls into three broad parts, which revolve around three 'stubborn questions'. The first part discusses questions relating to God; the second poses questions relating to incarnation and the person of Jesus Christ; and the third raises questions about the sources of religious knowledge. These three questions run through the book, as Macquarrie discusses some of the most profound issues in the history of theology, and those theologians who have been at the forefront of theological enquiry. Several prominent thinkers are given wide coverage here, including John Wycliffe, William Temple, Jurgen Moltmann, Nicolai Berdyaev, Rudolf Bultmann, Meister Eckhart, Martin Heidegger and Immanuel Kant. Stubborn Theological Questions is a fascinating survey of some of the most fundamental theological controversies of recent years by one of the world's leading scholars of theology and philosophy. It will prove essential reading for all students of contemporary theology.
