    The Courage to Be Vulnerable: Philosophical Considerations.Christa Anbeek - 2021 - International Journal of Philosophy and Theology 82 (1):64-76.
    ABSTRACT The central thesis of this essay is that, in addressing the many disruptive experiences people have in current times, Tillich’s notion of ‘the courage to be’ should be complemented by the notion of the ‘courage to be vulnerable’. In adding this idea, it is argued that courage should focus less on the anxieties of emptiness, guilt and death of the individual, but rather to being carried, becoming and appearing to each other. Philosophical support for this proposed modification has been (...)

    For the Love of This World: Michel Henry and Jean-Luc Nancy on Theology and Affectivity.Ashok Collins - 2021 - International Journal of Philosophy and Theology 82 (1):77-94.
    ABSTRACT When read alongside the great command of Deuteronomy, ‘love the Lord your God with all your heart, mind, and strength,’ the Judeo-Christian directive to ‘love your neighbour as yourself’ is perhaps one of the most theologically and ethically charged phrases in the Bible. In these two mutually reliant commandments lies a meeting point between the divine and the human that has important implications for our understanding of the nexus between theological conceptions of love and philosophical engagement with worldly existence.

    Many as One: Augustine’s Onefold Ecclesiology.Pablo Irizar & Anthony Dupont - 2021 - International Journal of Philosophy and Theology 82 (1):1-16.
    ABSTRACT Johannes van Oort claims that Augustine has an irreconcilable ‘two-fold ecclesiology,’ which separates the inwardness of unseen individual grace from the external empirical community. Efforts to unify Augustine’s ‘two-fold ecclesiology’ have hitherto focused on emphasizing the continuity between the invisible and the visible, the locus for which is often the manifestation of individual grace in the context of the community. The present article brackets the debate about grace and the power of signs and focuses instead on the relationship between (...)

    The Idea of the End: Kant’s Philosophical Eschatology.Evan F. Kuehn - 2021 - International Journal of Philosophy and Theology 82 (1):17-33.
    ABSTRACT Kant’s late essay ‘The End of All Things’ establishes a distinctly modern field of inquiry that has fittingly been called ‘philosophical eschatology’ by asking, ‘why do human beings expect an end of the world at all?’ Interpretation of the essay’s purpose and argument have usually taken one of two routes: Kant is either understood as writing an esoteric political critique under the guise of the philosophy of religion, or as being focused largely on problems related to the immortality of (...)

    Hart and Sartre on God and Consciousness.King-Ho Leung - 2021 - International Journal of Philosophy and Theology 82 (1):34-50.
    ABSTRACT This article offers a comparative reading of the ontologies of David Bentley Hart and Jean-Paul Sartre as well as their respective appeals to phenomenology as a philosophical method. While it may seem odd to compare one of the twentieth century’s most celebrated atheists with one of contemporary Christianity’s most highly-acclaimed critics of atheism, this article shows that there are many surprising parallels between the ontological outlooks of Hart and Sartre, namely their conceptions of God as the unity of being (...)

    Divine Simplicity: Some Recent Defenses and the Prevailing Challenge of Analogical Language.Rory Misiewicz - 2021 - International Journal of Philosophy and Theology 82 (1):51-63.
    ABSTRACT This essay’s aim is to demonstrate how recent defenses of divine simplicity have failed to address the prevailing challenge of analogical language, and thereby render much of their argumentation for simplicity’s appropriateness in Christian theology null-and-void. For this task, three book-length works published within the last few years are examined: Steven Duby’s Divine Simplicity: A Dogmatic Account, D. Stephen Long’s The Perfectly Simple Triune God: Aquinas and His Legacy, and Jordan Barrett’s Divine Simplicity: A Biblical and Trinitarian Account. The (...)
