Example text

Awareness of this fact has only recently affected the work of scholars and the life of Christians. The world is now a global village because of improved means of communication and travel. Hick's experience of encounter with persons of other faiths is multiplied many times by others in a variety of socio-cultural settings around the world. The veil of ignorance has been removed.

It is important for this study to have an accurate perception of Hick's religious epistemology. I have divided this chapter into seven sections. Five of these are meant to provide an accounting of Hick's clearly articulated positions within the scope of religious epistemology. One section, 'Religious Language', is a constructive effort to uncover Hick's early and continuing disposition toward myth and metaphor. This section will be important for the comparison and critique of his position with other thinkers, which will be the substance of chapters 5 and 6.

There seems to be some confusion, if not contradiction, in Hick's position regarding the nature of truth and truth claims. The personal-existential criteria could contradict the objective-metaphysical criteria for truth.
