This break up within the figuring out of spiritual language is generally said, yet rigorous philosophical research and evaluate of it's seldom visible.
Liberalism as opposed to Postliberalism offers such analyses, utilizing the advancements in analytic philosophy of language over the last 40 years. The booklet presents an unique examining of the "theology and falsification" debates of the Fifties and 60s, and Knight's interpretation of the debates provides a philosophical lens that brings into concentration the centrality of spiritual language within the methodological dispute among liberal and postliberal theologians.
