God Is A Symbol Of Something True


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

Much blood has been spilled and is still being spilled over the question, Is there such a thing as a true religion? To answer No, is to give up on religion. To answer Yes seems dangerous and naive. Yet there is a way of understanding religion that avoids the danger and is both emotionally and intellectually satisfying.

Dreams And Resurrection


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

If you are ever haunted by the thought of being sucked away into nothingness, you should read this book. It would be understandable for you to think that everything that can be said about the probability of an afterlife has already been said, but that doesn't matter. What matters is whether you remember the reasons why personal, subjective immortality makes sense and eternal death doesn't. Here you will find an extended inductive argument to that conclusion, based on the time-honored analogies between life and dream, death and sleep. The author takes an argument of David Hume's and turns it on its head. That argument forms the core of a view the author describes as Taoistic, psychedelic Christianity. Taoistic in that God's power is conceived as purely artistic and inspirational, and psychedelic in that the author acknowledges that taking LSD had a profound and benign influence on his life. On this view, the first-person perspective is given in experience. What kind of person you are is an ever-unfolding story that you strive to perfect.

Jesus Symbol Of God


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

Already hailed as a landmark in contemporary Catholic theology, Jesus Symbol of God surveys scriptural data, the key moments in the development of doctrine, and the distinctive horizons of our contemporary world to develop a comprehensive and systematic christology for our time. The task of christology is to explain what it means to say that Jesus is the bearer and revealer of God in the Christian community, the decisive mediation of God's salvation -- or, in other words, the symbol of God.

You’ve chosen the godparents, dressed the baby in yards of white, and headed to church for the christening. Now what? What does the sacrament of baptism mean in your child’s life – and yours? In Taking the Plunge, parents explore how the Baptismal Covenant helps to shape the experience of raising children. What are you promising when you baptize your child? Why are “please” and “thank you” theological words, not simply polite things to say? Anne Kitch writes with a light touch and includes plenty of real-life stories.

The Truth Of Broken Symbols


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

This book provides a cross-cultural analysis of how religious symbols function from a theological and philosophical perspective. Showing how religious symbols can be true in various qualified senses, Neville presents a theory of religious symbolism in the American pragmatic tradition extending and elaborating Tillich's claim that religious symbols participate in the divine realities to which they refer and yet must be broken in order not to be idolatrous or demonic. The Truth of Broken Symbols offers a theory of religious symbolism treating reference, meaning, and interpretation, and discussing different functions of religious symbols in theological, practical, and devotional contexts. It shows that religious symbols are to be properly understood as true or false and that symbol-systems such as myths, theologies, or liturgical symbols are to be used to engage divine realities while internally exhibiting semiotic structures of reference, meaning, and interpretation.

Communications Social Order Ppr


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

In this highly influential study of art forms as models for a theory of communications, Hugh Dalziel Duncan demonstrates that without understanding of the role of symbols in society, social scientists cannot hope to develop adequate models for social analysis. He reviews critically major contributions to communication theory during the past century: Freud's analysis of dream symbolism, Simmel's concept of sociability, James' insights into religious experience, and Dewey's relating of art to experience.
