'... extremely engaging and stimulating ... an important book ...We in the Sea of Faith ought to get to grips with this book ... in a curious way I found myself feeling a good deal closer to Moore than I do to many of my friends in Sea of Faith.' Stephen Mitchell, Sea of Faith
'The book displays a great deal of knowledge of the work of contemporary Christian philosophers and theologians with a philosophical bent ... Few books that I have read manage to delineate the battle lines between contemporary philosophy of religion and Barthian theology with as much clarity as Moore's. It is a technical book, replete with detailed discussions of highly nuanced philosophical and theological positions. It touches upon one central nerve of contemporary theology very accurately indeed.' The Way
'Here is a model piece of philosophical theology, or perhaps better Trinitarian explication, written with sinewy clarity and focus, treating the question of the existence of God as real, rather than a product of human culture and thought. It will prove a catalyst to much debate about how we can speak of God and the value of philosophical theology ... genuinely helpful for clergy wishing to remain in touch with the most recent developments in this area of theology ... many Christians will be very glad of this demanding and directly written text, bringing us right up to date with ultra modern philosophy in relation to the gospel and its implicit theology.' Anvil
'... a thoroughly researched, lucidly written, comprehensive account of theological realism that powerfully makes the case for a new approach to the issue.' International Journal of Systematic Theology
'Realism and Christian Faith is an ambitious work which engages with a wide range of sources in order to develop a uniquely Christian alternative to theological realist and non-realist approaches to doctrine. Along the way Moore makes some fascinating points.' Journal of Religious Studies
"The confidence and clarity Moore expresses throughout the work are refreshing." John D. Dadosky, Regis College, University of Toronto, Theology Today
"Moore's book is an impressive study of the problem of realism in modern theology and philosophy: whether God exists independently of human beings and their concepts.... Recommended." Choice
