Dewi Zephaniah Phillips
Ashgate Publishing, Ltd., Jan 1, 2008 - Religion - 173 pages

Here, criticisms by philosophers in the Thomist and Reformed traditions alert us to the dangers of uncritical acceptance of dominant philosophical traditions, and to the need to do justice to the conceptual uniqueness of the reality of God.
