Paul Ricoeur is one of the most influential philosophers alive today. This book draws primarily on Ricouer's hermeneutic insights to address the fundamental question of how reference, truth, and meaning are related in the discourse of theology. The author defends the view that theological truth claims cannot be sustained without some appeal to the referential, or in Ricouer's terminology, "refigurative" potential intrinsic to our linguistic practices. What it meansfor Christians to tell the truth, for their language and life to display and thus elicit trust, cannot be understood apart from an appreciation of the refigurative power of language. By appealing to Aristotle's theory of mimesis (imitation) and muthos (plot), as well as to the ideas of Augustine andHeidegger on time, Paul Ricouer offers striking possibilities whereby theological discourse might renew its task of speaking truthfully of God, and hence of our relation to God, to one another, and to the world.
