Faith and logic : Oxford essays in philosophical theology by Basil Mitchell( Book )

31 editions published between 1956 and 2013 in English and held by 888 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When this book was originally published in 1957 there had been lively debates on the air and in the press about the bearing of modern philosophy upon Christianity, but there had been relatively little sustained discussion of the subject. This book of essays was the product of a small group of Oxford philosophers and theologians, who had met and talked informally for some years before writing it. It is an attempt to discuss with care and candour some of the problems raised for Christian belief by contemporary analytical philosophy. In asking the questions raised, this book makes articu

The justification of religious belief by Basil Mitchell( Book )

24 editions published between 1973 and 2014 in English and held by 861 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book, Basil Mitchell analyzes the reasoning involved in the continuing debate between Christian theism and its secular critics. Arguing that theism cannot be definitively proved or disproved, he shows how the case for theism, like the case for any secular alternative to it, must rely on the cumulative weight of a set of converging arguments that cannot be entirely formalized. He contends that this pattern of argument is not confined to religious questions, but is employed in a wide variety of disputes, from small-scale disagreements over history or critical exegesis to debate involving profound conceptual differences in such fields as natural science, political theory, and metaphysics. Mitchell concludes with a discussion of the rationality of faith as commitment to undemonstrable religious or political beliefs and the uniqueness of faith in God

Faith and criticism : the Sarum lectures 1992 by Basil Mitchell( Book )

15 editions published between 1994 and 2001 in English and held by 320 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Faith and Criticism addresses a central problem in the church today--the tension between traditionalists and progressives. Traditionalists want above all to hold fast to traditional foundations in belief and ensure that nothing of value is lost, even at the risk of a clash with "modern knowledge." Progressives are concerned above all to proclaim a faith that is credible today, even at the risk of sacrificing some elements of traditional doctrine. They are often locked in uncomprehending conflict. Basil Mitchell argues that, not only in theology but in any other serious intellectual pursuit, faith and criticism are interdependent. A tradition which is not open to criticism will eventually ossify; and without faith in some established tradition criticism has nothing to fasten upon. This interdependence of faith and criticism has implications for society at large. Religious education can be Christian without ceasing to be critical, and a liberal society can espouse Christian values
