Tietoja tekijästä

Born in Scarborough, England, Hick received his D. Phil. from Oxford University. For several years he served as a Presbyterian minister in Northumberland, England, but soon moved to the United States, where he took a position teaching philosophy at Cornell University. He served as Stuart Professor näytä lisää of Christian Philosophy at Princeton Theological Seminary from 1959 to 1964. Since then he has held a variety of teaching positions in the United States and England. Throughout Hick's career, his main focus has remained on problems in the philosophy of religion. His numerous books, particularly those concerned with the epistemology of religious belief, are marked with a consistently clear and easily accessible style. For this reason, his writings have always been popular among professional philosophers and theologians, as well as among those who are more casually interested in the nature of religious belief or the place of religion in contemporary culture. In more recent years, Hick became more single-minded in his concern with the problem of religious pluralism. Convinced that Western philosophical and religious thought have been too narrowly shaped by preoccupation with the Judeo-Christian tradition, he argues for a broader, more ecumenical spirit.

The authors' thesis is that Jesus was as he is presented in Acts 2.21 a man approved by God for a special role within the divine purpose, and the later conception of him as God incarnate, the second person of the Holy Trinity living a human life, is a mythological or poetic way of expressing his significance for us.
