Item Description...
This book offers an introduction to the developments in philosophy of language, especially as these developments relate to religious language, particularly Christian discussion. This book not only discusses analytical philosophy, but also includes major historical debates about religious language along with several contemporary movements such as hermeneutical philosophy, philosophy of metaphor, narrative, structuralism, and poststructuralism. Dan Stiver provides an exposition of the different approaches with attention to central thinkers and works. These discussions intersect with religious studies, and this provides an expanding conversation about the subject as the book progresses. Dan R. Stiver, at the time of this publication, was Associate Professor of Christian Philosophy at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky.

Publishers Description
This text provides a lively introduction to the developments in philosophy of language in this century, and to the way these have impinged upon religious language. Included is the relevance of analytical philosophy of language, but the text also covers important historical debates about religious language that have had increasing impact upon biblical studies and theology.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Best book on the topic  Oct 10, 2001
Of the many recent works on the philosophy of language and religion, Stiver's book is the best. Further, it is extremely well written. The text is suitable for the introductory student (but the endnotes would be enlightening for the more advanced student).

Stiver's work is an excellent addition to the field. Students of the theology and philosophy of religion are in Stiver's debt.

it is a comprehesive overview of religious language  Jul 23, 1999
This book is a very comprehensive enterprise of studying recent thought about religious language. The author did a very fine job both philosophically and theologically. He covers both classical approaches and contemporary or postmodern approaches to language. I highly recommend this book for those who are looking for a comprehensive overview of philosophy of language.
