Review of the hardback: 'This intense and profound book performs the very approach it recommends, by demonstrating throughout intellectual virtues of patience, attention, rigour and commitment. Janz writes well and in a style refreshingly free from self-indulgent obscurity.' Times Literary Supplement Review of the hardback: '... a magnificent achievement ... anyone professionally involved in the realist/antirealist debate should read this book and take it seriously. They should also encourage their graduate students to read it.' Reviews in Religion and Theology Review of the hardback: '... rewarding study that is carefully argued, challenging and thought provoking for all who are interested in the fate of theological discourse in our so-called postmodern age ...' Conversations in Religions and Theology Review of the hardback: '... most lucidly argued throughout, frequently persuasive in its analysis of other writers, and profound and innovative in its conclusions ... and which speaks of the author as well-read in both theology and philosophy and writes with the confidence of someone who has mastered the relevant literature'.
