This collection of essays, written between 1975 and 1987, covers topics including the doctrine of analogy, the Trinity, theological realism, the problims of evil and suffering, ecclesiology, and the so-called theistic proofs. The earlier writings relect the author's training as a philosopher in the Anglo-Aamerican analytic tradition. Later essays have a more explicitly theological focus, and they attempt to deal with and move beyond the tradition through hermeneutics, and literary and social theory. This collection thus addresses a wider list of topics than is usual in works of philsophical theology, and is unique in its use of interdisciplinary methods and approaches.

The Trinity and philosophical reflection: a study of David Brown's The Divine Trinity
'Is it true what they say about 'theological realism'?'

Atonement and moral apocalypticism: William Styron's Sophie's Choice
