About this title


One of America's most distinguished scholars offers a highly current and suggestive way of transcending the limitations of the language employed in those disciplines which address the most basic problems of human existence. His work suggests the adjustments required of theological method when these limitations are taken seriously. When Professor Meland writes of the "limitations of language," he does not deal with the semantic issues usually faced by analysts, but with the limitations inherent in the cultural condition of human beings who live and move within nature and history. Thus, a sense of "wonder and waiting" and open awareness to "what is more than we can think" are shown to be indispensable to critical thought. FALLIBLE FORMS AND SYMBOLS charts a course of inquiry that combines abstract and imaginative modes of discourse in religious thought. Dimensions of depth which are part of every conscious act of living and awareness are explored.
