How imagination enriches theology – an old book still in print!
Imagination and faith were often opposed, but in fact, for science and theology as well as the arts, imagination has a key role. This book, based on the Margaret Harris lectures given at Dundee University in November 1984, takes up the challenge left by George MacDonald, who saw imagination as one of the attributes of God. In dialogue with figures like Jean-Paul Sartre, R.G. Collingwood, Gilbert Ryle, Dame Mary Warnock and Iris Murdoch, emeritus Professor John McInyre demonstrates the importance of imagination across the spectrum of Christian theology, ethics and devotion.
John McIntyre was Professor of Divinity and vice-Principal at Edinburgh University
