Analogy and philosophical language by David B Burrell( Book )

16 editions published between 1965 and 2016 in English and held by 684 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The most useful and available key to someone's position lies in the expressions he is prepared to make his own. Language clearly reflects the bearings we have taken as well as it reveals how aware we are that we have taken them. The language he uses not only shows us where someone stands but also lets us in on the extent to which he understands where he stands. And if the expressions we are prepared to utter are so revealing about our position in the world, perhaps the language we use can also reveal some basic facts about the world itself--or the world as we most basically see it. Language wo

Exercises in religious understanding by David B Burrell( Book )

10 editions published between 1974 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 558 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The dual purpose of this book is to point out the ways whereby reflective religious thinkers work and to suggest how these skills can be acquired. It is a manual of apprenticeship in acquiring religious understanding. The thought of Augustine, Anselm, Aquinas, Kierkegaard, and Jung on selected religious topics is developed expressly to show how each handled these issues and thus to provide living exemplars for religious understanding. The issues have an inherent unity in their dealing with man's knowledge of God, especially in their concern with the ways we treat what must be beyond our grasp. Au

Towards a Jewish-Christian-Muslim theology by David B Burrell( Book )

22 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and held by 250 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Religious debate among Jewish, Christian, and Islamic scholars has acquired urgent new dimensions in recent years. Yet over the course of 1400 years, what have the Abrahamic traditions really learned from each other? Brilliantly demonstrating the ways that Christianity, Islam, and the Judaism have struggled with similarly intractable issues over the centuries, Towards a Jewish-Christian-Muslim Theology offers insightful new pathways for productive theological work, along with deep insights into the topic of faith itself. Burrell uses exercises in 'creative hermeneutics' to show how each tradition struggles with complex issues, and how comparative inquiry illuminates those issues to the benefit of each tradition. For each key topic explored, renowned religious scholar and theologian David B. Burrell shows how intellectual trends of their day may be read to extend the reach of each tradition itself. By illuminating the actual and potential interaction among the dominant monotheistic religions, Towards a Jewish-Christian-Muslim Theology offers inspiration for continued theological dialogue and hope for people of all faiths in the 21st century"--
Faith and freedom : an interfaith perspective by David B Burrell( Book )

15 editions published between 2004 and 2008 in English and held by 248 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this book, David Burrell, one of the foremost philosophical theologians in the English-speaking world, presents the culmination of his work on creation and human freedom. Drawing on his philosophical and theological insights from the last 20 years, he develops an integrated argument with far-reaching consequences for capitalist cultures." "Engaging with the Islamic, Judaic, and Christian traditions, and with modern as well as classical systems of thought, Burrell dismantles the "libertarian" approach to freedom that dominates Western politics and economics, proposing that alongside freedom of choice we need freedom of consent."--Jacket
Creation and the God of Abraham by David B Burrell( Book )

15 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 220 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Creatio ex nihilo is a foundational doctrine in the Abrahamic faiths. It states that God created the world freely out of nothing - from no pre-existent matter, space or time. This teaching is central to classical accounts of divine action, free will, grace, theodicy, religious language, intercessory prayer and questions of divine temporality and as such, the foundation of a scriptural God but also the transcendent Creator of all that is. This edited collection explores how we might now recover a place for this doctrine, and with it, a consistent defence of the God of Abraham in philosophical, scientific, and theological terms. The contributions span the religious traditions of Judaism, Christianity and Islam, and cover a wide range of sources, including historical, philosophical, scientific and theological. As such, the book develops these perspectives to reveal the relevance of this idea within the modern world"--Provided by publisher

Al-Ghazali, Averroës and the interpretation of the Qur'an : common sense and philosophy in Islam by Avital Wohlman( Book )

8 editions published between 2009 and 2013 in English and held by 165 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book examines the contrasting interpretations of Islam and the Qur'an by Averroes and Al-Ghazali, as a way of helping us untangle current impasses affecting each Abrahamic faith. This has traditionally been portrayed as a battle between philosophy and theology, but the book shows that Averroes was rather more religious and Al-Ghazali more philosophical than they are usually portrayed. The book traces the interaction between two Muslim thinkers, showing how each is convinced of the existence of a Book in which God is revealed to rational beings, to whom He has given commandments, as well as of the excellence of Islamic society. Yet they differ regarding the proper way to interpret the sacred Book. From this point of view, their discussion does not address the contrast between philosophy and religion, or that between reason and revelation that is so characteristic of the Middle Ages, but rather explores differences at the heart of philosophical discussion in our day: is there a level of discourse which will facilitate mutual comprehension among persons, allowing them to engage in debate? This interpretation of sacred texts illustrates the ways religious practice can shape believers' readings of their sacred texts, and how philosophical interpretations can be modified by religious practice. Moreover, since this sort of inquiry characterizes each Abrahamic tradition, this study can be expected to enhance interfaith conversation and explore religious ways to enhance tolerance between other believers
Postliberal theology and the church catholic : conversations with George Lindbeck, David Burrell, and Stanley Hauerwas by John W Wright( Book )

5 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 161 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How does postliberalism relate to Roman Catholic theology? More specifically, how reliant is postliberalism on what happened at Vatican II? This work examines the Roman Catholic roots of postliberal theology, centering on conversations with three of the most important North American theologians in the last half of the twentieth century
The faith and practice of al-Ghazālī by Ghazzālī( Book )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 148 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Al-Ghazali was one of the great Muslim theologians. In this book the author provides a translation of some of his works, including his spiritual autobiography. Al-Ghazali's description of his own emergence from scepticism anticipates the philosophical method of systematic doubt employed by Descartes. Another work translated here sets out Al-Ghazali's ideal of how a religious person should order his life from hour to hour and day to day
