Education and the Transition to a Postmodern World

God and Religion in the Postmodern World
God and Religion in the Postmodern World (December 1988)
Essays in Postmodern Theology
David Ray Griffin - Author

The naturalistic theism presented in this book is addressed to readers who have found liberal theology empty or who believe that one cannot be religious and fully rational and empirical at the same time. Griffin shows that the postmodern view is more empirical and rational than that of late modern materialism.

This is not a return to early modern dualistic supernaturalism. The mechanism and sensationalism of Descartes and Newton precluded a...(Read More)
