Inspiration by David R Law( )

13 editions published between 2001 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,206 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this book David Law develops his theory of inspiration starting with texts as varied as Virgil's Aeneid and Shakespeare's plays, before focusing on the Bible. Following Karl Jaspers, Law views all human knowledge as having limits beyond which there exists the transcendent. There are symbols, signs and characters - or 'ciphers' - that inhabit religion and art and which point beyond these horizons. Perceiving these is at the heart of inspiration and the knowledge of God. For Law, the key to the question of inspiration and to the Bible lies with understanding the reader's encounter with these ciphers, the most supreme of which is Christ."--Jacket
Kierkegaard as negative theologian by David R Law( Book )

20 editions published between 1989 and 2001 in English and Undetermined and held by 430 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is concerned with Kierkegaard's 'apophaticism', i.e. with those elements of Kierkegaard's thought which emphasize the incapacity of human reason and the hiddenness of God. Apophaticism is an important underlying strand in Kierkegaard's thought and colours many of his key concepts. Despite its importance, however, it has until now been largely ignored by Kierkegaardian scholarship. In this book, the author argues that apophatic elements can be detected in every aspect of Kierkegaard's thought and that, despite proceeding from different presuppositions, he can therefore be regarded as a negative theologian. Indeed, the book concludes by arguing that Kierkegaard's refusal to make the transition from the via negativa to the via mystica means that he is more apophatic than the negative theologians themselves
