Synopsis: Description: If radical postmodernism offers nothing more than arbitrary fictions and modernism is coldly but meaninglessly objective, where is reality? Apologizing for God argues that reality rests in the lives we live in history. In other words, it argues that living as understood on the basis of the incarnational nature of Christianity is an appropriate response to our current cultural situation. Partly philosophical, partly theological, and deeply Christian, Apologizing for God explores the importance of living in the presence of God as revealed in the autobiographies of our lives. Although not autobiographical in the strict sense, this book is an apologetic for the truth of Christianity explained through one Christian philosopher's understanding of our relationship to history in which God is revealed. Endorsements: ""This book is playful, disturbing, passionate, light-hearted, accessible, and profound-all at the same time. McLeod-Harrison engages the depths of our lives and does so with a hard-won grace--a grace that God gives on the other side of our suffering and striving. This book will delight its readers and gently lead them further into life with God."" --Jonathan R. Wilson Pioneer McDonald Professor of Theology Carey Theological College ""Apologizing for God is a remarkable achievement on two counts. First, through drawing on the resources of his own academic and personal journey, McLeod-Harrison narrates into existence a hospitable and much needed space between the epistemological extremes of the modernism and postmodernism. Second, through a series of word studies--rich in literary allusion and philosophical exploration--he invites readers to encounter a God who is much more relevant than the valid conclusion of a sound argument. The book may surprise at points. It will not disappoint."" --Shirley A. Mullen President and Professor of History Houghton College About the Contributor(s): Mark S. McLeod-Harrison is Professor of Philosophy at George Fox University. He is the author of Make/Believing the World(s), Repairing Eden, and Rationality and Belief in God. He is an Anglican priest.
