Abstract:

For beginning philosophy and theology students as well as ministers and educated lay people alike, Truth considered and applied examines the leading theories of truth in relation to postmodernism, history, and Christian faith. Author Stewart E. Kelly defends thoughtful Christianity in the face of postmodernist challenges that would label such religious faith as merely a version of truth among many in a pluralistic world. Likewise in looking at Christianity as a historical faith, Kelly supports the need for Christians to develop a method of interpretation that does justice to the biblical texts and our informed understanding of the past in general; because if a genuine past cannot be recovered in some meaningful sense, the claims of Jesus being incarnate and risen from the dead are seriously jeopardized. Many today believe that the quest for truth is the establishment of power, that objectivity is merely an Enlightenment myth, that all reality is discursively constructed, and that the notion of genuine knowledge should be left to a bygone era. In this perceptive and provocative book, Stewart E. Kelly challenges these postmodern positions. While avoiding a sledgehammer apologetic, he persuasively contends for a modest objectivity, a view of truth that transcends construction and culture.
