Religious language – introduction

“Statements about God or religious phenomena are philosophically problematic. How are we to understand talk of ‘the infinite’ or ‘eternal life’ or ‘omnipresence’ when we have no direct experience of these concepts? What does it mean to say that ‘God loves us’ when we have so little understanding of God?”
