Re-Defining God: The Rhetoric of Reconciliation
Preview not available

Abstract

Religious people who encounter crisis and tragedy often question the premises of their faith. Many of those believers, in order to continue in a life of faith, must re-imagine their conceptions of God. This process of re-imagining God, whether for an individual believer or a professional theologian, is a dialogical one. Utilizing Bakhtin's conception of speech utterances, we will model a process of reconciliation by which believers such as C. S Lewis and Shusaku Endo and theologians such as Schmuel Boteach and Enrique Dussell contribute to a rhetorical, dynamic understanding of God.
