Divine Discourse: Philosophical Reflections on the Claim That God Speaks by Nicholas Wolterstorff

My library Help Advanced Book Search. Nicholas Wolterstorff, Cambridge, MA: This claim figures large in the canonical texts and traditions of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, but there has been remarkably little philosophical reflection on it, in good measure so Professor Wolterstorff argues because philosophers have mistakenly assimilated divine speech to divine revelation.

He embraces contemporary speech-action theory as his basic approach to language; and after expanding the theory beyond its usual applications, concludes that the claim that God performs illocutionary actions is coherent and entails no obvious falsehoods. A prolific writer with wide-ranging philosophical and theological interests, he has written books on metaphysics, aesthetics, political philosophy, epistemology and theology and philosophy of religion.
