God-talk: An Examination of the Language and Logic of Theology.
Macquarrie, John.
ISBN: 1859310249
XPress Reprints / SCM Press London 1994 
  Paperback small octavo, very good condition, few tiny dents & scuffs rear cover, minor edgewear. 255 pp. A great introduction to theology, particularly the problems about language that confront the modern theologian. Analytical philosophy, existentialism, Biblical criticism and continental neo-Protestant theology, all contribute to a single argument about the problems of human likeness to God (and anthropomorphism) with precision. Lucidly explains the issues raised for Christian belief both by empiricist analytical philosophy and by existentialist hermeneutics. Following Wittgenstein, he holds that we must allow each linguistic form to disclose its own logic - to speak in terms of myth, symbol and analogy. Existentialist interpretation cannot exhaust the meaning of theological language, otherwise we are reduced to anthropology. We must progress to ontology - to talk about the transcendent Being of God. A timely counter-poise to over-facile analyses of the logic of theology that result in a kind of Christian atheism.

Sibree's translation of the work, originally published by The Colonial Press, New York, 1899.
