Speech and Theology: Language and the Logic of Incarnation (Routledge Radical Orthodoxy)
Theology tends to overstep its bounds: speaking of that which is beyond and resists language and conceptual determination. Is theory possible in theology? Is expression justified when the object is inexpressible?
These are the timeless and profound questions Smith explores in this new addition to the growing and impressive series of books emerging from the circle of theologians espousing a so-called ''Radical Orthodoxy. What results is a reconsideration of theological method, a fresh vindication of the long tradition of negative theology, and a proposal for a theological employment of concepts which ''do justice'' to God: an ethical responsibility to speak about God because of His speaking first, in creation and Incarnation one notes here a striking similarity to St.
John Damascene's theological defense of visual icons. As Smith states his objective: ''a systematic construction of a philosophical method attentive to the challenge of incommensurability. Augustine stated that ''we are involved in heaven knows what kind of battle of words'' and what a rewarding battle Smith makes it.
