Philosophical Theology [Book Review]

Review of Metaphysics 23 (2):356-357 (1969)

These volumes are reprinted without change, revision, or comment from the 1928 edition. Tennant set out with a largely empirical method to investigate the presuppositions of Christian theology. In the back of his mind was an arbitration between theology and science. His ethical theism makes room for a purposive creator and sustainer of the world. It makes room for an enduring soul but not for original sin. In a scheme that brings to mind some modern efforts at "natural theology," he sees God, man, and the world as mutually requisite.--S. O. H.
